Best Time To Perform Homa

Homa is also known as Havan


Answer  :

The best time to do homa such as Ganesha homa, Navagraha homa, Sri Rudra Homa, et cetera is between the period of sunrise and noon (that will be from 6.00 a.m. till 12.00 p.m. – sunrise is usually at 6.00 a.m. in India, please check your local timing) and that is when the sun is in the ascent (Surya Arohana).

One should not perform any homas during the evening and at night. However, there are some special exceptions for homas like Chandi Homa which is prescribed in the mantra shastras that it should be performed either in the late evening or at night.

If a homa is started in the morning, it should be completed before sunset.

Agnihotra (also known as Agni Hotra) must be performed exactly during the sunrise and sunset.
