Aruṇodaya (अरुणोदय) refers to “dawn”, according to the Arcana-dīpikā (manual on deity worship).—[...] In the last part of the night, the segment of time consisting of the two muhūrtas (one hour and thirty-six minutes) before sunrise, is called aruṇodaya, or dawn. The first of these two muhūrtas is called the brāhma-muhūrta. This brāhma-muhūrta is the most beneficial time of the day for the cultivation of spiritual life.
