Hi everyone


Someone has sent me this information.


My questions are to its validity and how does one adapt the times to local

time zone [or should they not be changed?]

Any expert opinions?


Rahu Kalam, Gulikai, and yama gandam,- each is a time period of

90 minutes duration each day and people who know their importance

and effects always follow them strictly.


I am giving below the relevant time periods :


MON : 07.30 to 09.00 (Rahu Kalam);

MON : 10. 30 to 12.00 (Yama Gandam);

MON : 13.30 to 15.00 (Gulikai)

TUE : 15.00 to 16.30 ( RK)

TUE : 09.00 to 10.30 ( YG)

TUE : 12.00 to 13.30 ( G )

WED : 12.00 to 13.30 ( RK)

WED : 07.30 to 09.00 ( YG)

WED : 10.30 to 12.00 ( G )

THU : 13.30 to 15.00 ( RK)

THU : 06.00 to 07.30 ( YG)

THU : 09.00 to 10.30 ( G )

FRI : 10.30 to 12.00 ( RK)

FRI : 15.00 to 16.30 ( YG)

FRI : 07.30 to 09.00 ( G )

SAT : 09.00 to 10.30 ( RK)

SAT : 13.30 to 15.00 (YG)

SAT : 06.00 to 07.30 (G )

SUN : 16.30 to18.00 (RK)

SUN : 12.00 to 13.30 (YG)

SUN : 15.00 to 16.30 ( G )


Rahu Kalam and yama Gandam are always considered inauspicious while Gulikai

though not inauspicious, is not again treated specially auspicous as there

are times of auspiciousness for each day of a year and it is generally

avoided for

removing human bodies after departure of the soul , for cremation/burial.



A final question: Is this material really Jyothis?


kind regards

These read like a variation on the planetary hours theme , in which case I would

expect them to originally have started solely at dawn or dusk or else to have

been instead divided between the periods of day and night ( unless the latter be

a specifically New World working , which I believe it isn't ) . At a guess it is

related to the Indian system which uses the time of local sunrise in order to

determine the Ascendant .
