Gold is valued all over the world. Throughout the centuries, human beings have bought gold for various reasons. We depend on gold when other forms of currency fail to work. So it is insurance against hard times. 

Unlike paper currencies and other assets, the value of gold has remained intact throughout the ages. Gold is one way to pass on and preserve wealth.

In many countries, gold is an integral part of the culture. In China, gold bars are used as savings. India is the second-largest gold-purchasing nation in the world. During the Indian wedding season in October, one sees the highest global demand for gold.

Gold in India is increasingly seen as a form of investment. But it also has a traditional significance. People buy gold for their own use, and they also offer gold to the Gods, buy them for their daughters, etc. It is also important to buy gold at an auspicious time or Shubh Muhurat.

Why does Shubh Muhurat matter?

According to astrologers, if something has a high price and has immense value attached to it, it should be purchased on an auspicious day/muhurat. In the Hindu calendar, each day has a time period called Rahu Kalam. Rahu is regarded as a malefic planet. It tends to make people greedy, lustful, and selfish, as these are also its own traits. Rahu’s malefic energies are most powerful during Rahu Kalam. Thus, it is not good to buy anything auspicious at this time, as we will want more of it and become greedy. There are also other reasons for checking which day and time are best to buy gold.
