Abhijit Nakshatra

Abhijit considered to be one of the most auspicious Nakshatras, but it's not reckoned in all elections. For example, it's included in such Muhurta tables as Trinadi Chakra, Langala Chakra and some others.

Abhijit Nakshatra starts from the last pada (quarter) of Uttara Shadha Nakshatra and it extends up to 1/15th part of Shravana Nakshatra. It lies between 276 degrees 40 minutes to 280 degrees 53 minutes 20 seconds. The major portion of Abhijit Nakshatra lies in Makara Rashi and Meena Navamsha.

Abhijit means “Victorious” or "the One who cannot be defeated". In Bhagavad Geeta, Krishna said that He was Shiva among Rudras; He was Arjuna among Pandava and He was Abhijit among Nakshatras. All these statements underline the importance of Abhijit. Classical vedic texts mention Abhijit as one of the most auspicious time for doing any auspicious activity excepting travelling to southern direction. Its deity is Lord Brahma.  Some vedic texts also mention that 28 minutes before and 28 minutes after 12:00 clock (a.m. and p.m. both) is called as Abhijit Muhurtāh too. The interesting fact is that Lord Rama was born at 12:00 a.m. and Lord Krishna (the son of Shri Vasudeva and not the Almighty deity Krishna Himself) was born at 12:00 p.m.
