Difference between today's choghadiya (aaj ka Choghadiya) and today shubh muhurat (aaj ka shubh muhurat)?

Today shubh muhurat or Shubh Muhurat today or aaj ka shubh samay is the time which is determined by calculating planetary positions. Marriages, Pujas, inauguration, opening of shops or any auspicious work is done after analyzing today Shubh Muhurat. There can be many Muhurats in a month or there are chances that there won’t be a single Shubh Muhurat in a day. Whereas, today Choghadiya or Choghadiya today or aaj ka Choghadiya shares the information about the auspicious time or Shubh Muhurat in a day. Choghadiya comes every day and divides a day into 8 parts consisting of Shubh Muhurat and Ashubh Muhurat.

How Today, Aaj ka Choghadiya is Calculated?

Today Choghadiya or Aaj ka Choghadiya Muhurat is calculated by dividing day and night into eight equal parts. Since there are seven Choghadiyas, each six Chaughadiyas get one division while the one Choghadiya gets 2 divisions. Each division or period of Choghadiya approximately equals four Ghadi.

The sequence of Daytime and night time Choghadiya varies for each week day but remains the same for that specific day. For instance, the sequence of Choghadiya for Monday will be different from Tuesday and Tuesday sequence will be different from Wednesday sequence. But the sequence for each Monday, each Tuesday and other following weekdays will be the same.
