Hinduism - What Is The Significance Of Omens In Hinduism?

 


The concepts of auspiciousness and inauspiciousness are firmly ingrained in Hindu culture, and are founded on the belief that some items bring good fortune by their inherent nature, while others bring bad fortune.

The concept of omens is an extension of this concept; omens are significant not because they generate good or ill fortune in and of themselves, but because they represent current situations.

According to this concept, fortunate circumstances will naturally produce positive omens, whereas unfavorable circumstances will produce bad omens.

Omens are markers that may be used to assess the present situation and make any required modifications.

For example, if one encounters an unfavorable individual while leaving the house to perform business, one should return home and start again, lest the effort be unsuccessful.
