Rahu Kaal

According to the Puranas, when Lord Dhanvantari appeared with Amritkalash at the time of churning of the sea (Amritmanthan), there was a quarrel between the Devas and the Danavs to receive the Amritpan first. Looking at the growing problems between them, Dhanvantari Ji remembered Lord Vishnu and prayed for an end to the controversy over Amrit Kalash between the two clans. To prevent the demon from becoming immortal Lord Vishnu took the form of nymph Mohini and diverted the attention of the demons from Amrit Kalash.

Rahu changed his garb and joined the Gods or Devtas and had the Amritpan. After Amritpan, the sun and moon then recognized him. Then Lord Narayan cut his throat with his Sudarshan Chakra but few drops of nectar or Amrit had already gone down Rahu's throat and that is why Rahu attained immortality. The period during which Rahu's head was cut is called 'Rahu Kaal'. This period is considered inauspicious. It is harmful to start any new work during this period. Therefore, you should avoid introducing new tasks during this period.
