It is important to worship and read the Panchang every morning because it helps in determining the auspicious and inauspicious timings. The Abhijeet Muhurat is deemed as the most auspicious Muhurat. It is ideal for making new beginnings. Vijay Muhurat and Godhuli Muhurat are also equally favourable. However, one must avoid Rahu Kaal for beginning any new venture or stepping out of the house for auspicious work.
For the unversed, the Panchang is a calendar based on the conventional units of the traditional Hindu timekeeping system that registers all the significant moments (muhurat and kaala) of the day including the Nakshatra that prevails other than the sunrise, moonrise timings, and several details. The Panchang precisely mentions the tithi, nakshatra, yogya, karana, and vaar.
Hindus follow the Lunar as well as the Solar calendars for various purposes. Therefore, it is suggested that people rise early, take a bath, and after worshipping the deities, read the Panchang. They can choose the best time for beginning any important venture and initiating something new.
