Brahmamuhurtha (Sanskrit-ब्रह्म मुहूर्त, lit

 ’time of Brahman’) is a period (muhurta) that begins one hour and 36 minutes before sunrise, and ends 48 minutes before sunrise

It is traditionally the penultimate phase or muhurta of the night, and is considered an auspicious time for all practices of yoga and most appropriate for meditation, worship or any other religious practice

Spiritual activities performed early in the morning are said to have a greater effect than in any other part of the day

Brahmamuhurtha is the 14th muhurtha kala of the night

One muhurtha is a period of 48 minutes, with a whole night consisting of 15 muhurthas

The time of sunrise varies each day, according to geographic location and time of year, and the time of the Brahmamuhurta varies with it

For example, if sunrise is at 6:00am, the brahmamuhurta begins at 4:24am and ends at 5:12am
