It must also be stated that though the mahurat or auspicious times have a great significance, but just in case you do not happen to remember or miss out on some of them do not worry. These times are more like external aids which help to magnify the vibrations or forces which you create with your actions otherwise the main power is still within. If you have a strong belief, faith and a sense of determination then all times are auspicious for you
