Can anyone please tell me how to calculate 4th pahar of night?

Cam someone develop an iOS app that does it automatically.

Amrit vela aka Brahma Muhurti in Himduism. It is when there is a special wavelength of light.

Not sure what you really mean but 

1st pahar day = 12 am till 3 am

2nd pahar day = 3 am till 6 am 

3rd pahar day = 6 am till 9 am

4th pahar day = 9 am till 12 pm

1st pahar night = 12 pm till 3 pm

2nd pahar night = 3 pm till 6 pm 

3rd pahar night = 6 pm till 9 pm

4th pahar night = 9 pm till 12 am

I might be wrong. Please correct me

Yeah, this is the the pahar in terms of timing.

But in terms of day and night:

Day = the four pahars that fall between 6am and 6pm.

I heard a katha about this too I'll see if I can find it.

One pahar (from sanskrit/prakrit : Prahara) is equal to 3 hours . Day has 4 pahars , and night has 4 pahars too. 

Day pahars start from 6 am and ends at 6 pm at evening

Night pahars start from 6 pm and ends at 6 am in the morning 

So day pahars : 

  1. (6 am - 9am)
  2. (9am - 12pm)
  3. (12pm-3pm)
  4. (3pm-6pm)

Night pahars : 

  1. (6pm - 9pm)
  2. (9pm-12am)
  3. (12am-3am)
  4. (3am-6am)

Since gurbani encourages to recite name of lord in last pahar of night, amritvela is technically from 3 am until 6 am in the morning

AjeetSingh, has given slightly correct as I have heard the same, but I also heard the below: 

Day = 4 pahars

Night = 4 pahars

Day = Sunrise to Sunset

Days Pahar = Daylight hours / 4 

Night = Sunset to Sunrise

Night Pahars = Night hours / 4

For my location

Sunrise = 9 am

Sunset = 5 pm

Night pahars = 16/4 = 4 hours

4 pahars of night @ 4 hours

This means amrit vela for my location is 5am-9am.

The above is one explanation given to me.

You can read this, but its based on Indian time: https://isha.sadhguru.org/ca/en/wisdom/article/brahma-muhurta-time-to-create-yourself

Someone living in a different place. The Amrit Vela will be different. So please clarify the above logic.

Thanks.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
