Diwali Pooja: Some Important Points to Know

Tomorrow is Diwali. Hindu scriptures have lots to tell about dos and donts on this holy festival. Here I have noted down few important points for you -
  • Take oil massage in the morning
  • Worship with deepak
  • The best time for Laxmi pujan is 3 muhurta (144 minutes) from sunset. Three muhurta (6 ghadi or 144 minutes) period everyday is called Nitya Pradosh and considered auspicious. As I mentioned in the last post, please consult local panchang or news paper to know the exact muhurat time for your place.
  • Fast till Laxmi Pujan and eat only once after the pooja
  • Wear flower garland
  • Put on white clothes
  • Remain awake till mid night and throw away poverty from the home by playing holy instruments (shankh etc.)

Panchang & Diwali Muhurta for Laxmi Pujan

These are articles are good introduction to panchang and Muhurta astrology respectively -


These are good introductory articles and must read for astrology beginners, especially students from the Muhurta branch of Vedic astrology.

I reached these websites while I was trying to find out the authentic websites that gives Muhurta for Laxmi Pujan this Deepawali (2008). I didn't find much agreement and I think this is definitely a topic of detailed article. Though there is not much time before Diwali so you will have to wait till next Diwali ;-)

Anyways, it is important to understant that the two most important parts of Diwali Laxmi Pujan muhurta calculation are sunrise time (for calculating pradosh period) and ascendant (lagna). Both of these varies from location to location. So the muhurta for Delhi will not be same as muhurta for Agra. It is important you consult local panchang, local news paper or local astrologer so that you know exact muhurta for your location.

Print Birth Chart/ Horoscope Online

Get Hard-copy of birth charts and horary charts FREE

Dear Friends,

You might be wondering where was I, as you didn't see any blog post here. Actually I was busy in making some enhancements to www.AstroSage.com, so that it becomes more useful for the people. One such recently added feature is "Print" feature in AstroSage.

I am extremely pleased to announce that now you can take printout of horoscopes/ birth charts/ kundlis/ janam patri from AstroSage.com. In absence of a FREE solution for printing kundlis, people have to struggle with all sort of technical complexities. We have seen recent discussions on software where members struggled to get chart using a free software. Now with this new functionality, you have following advantage –

1. Take prints of detailed astrology calculation on one signle page
2. Share horoscope online on the email as well as on the web

Now AstroSage.com can generate the image of a page which can give you a formatted output. Right now, I have added three pages as follows –
1. KP Page – it gives you planetary positions, cuspal positions, significators, ruling planets etc.
2. Shodashvarga Page – It gives you all 16 divisional charts on one page.
3. Main Page – It gives you lagna chart, navamasa chart, ashtakvarga, chalit positions etc.

Once you create a chart using AstroSage.com, look for KP print page and other print pages. Some links are marked with "new" so that it can be located easily.

I would also like to request my readers to to forward this email to your friends and family members so that they can also take advantage of this feature. It will help in spreading the words and making this free utility available to all. I believe that it will be very useful for the astrology enthusiasts.

Looking forward to your feedback so that I can improve it further and incorporate more features.

Thanks & Regards,
