Panchak 2016

Know the effect of Panchak Like every other year, Panchak in 2016 will also affect you in some or the other way. That is why AstroSage has developed this article on Panchak 2016 exclusively. This article will offer you exact details on Panchak 2016. Read more to explore on Panchak and exact dates of Panchak 2016.

Panchak is that duration of time in which people are advised not to carry out certain tasks. This phase of time isn’t considered very pious in Hinduism. The phenomenon behind the panchak is the transit of moon through the last 5 nakshatra (constellations) that are Dhanishtha, Shatabhisha, Purvabhadrapada, Uttarabhadrapada and Revati or the last 2 zodiac signs Aquarius and Pisces. The transit of Moon through these 5 constellations takes 5 days approximately, therefore people abstain from the prohibited tasks for these days to avoid any adversity.

The phase of Panchak occurs after every 27 days approx, as there are 27 constellations in total. It is advisable for everyone to know the time duration of Panchak in every month, so that it becomes easy to refrain from the prohibited things. Everyone must be aware of the dates of the Panchak so that that person can be prepared in advance. However, it is not possible for a person to stay away from all the prohibited tasks but at least they can try their level best in scheduling their work before or after the Panchak. In the year 2016 also every month is going to experience the phase of Panchak. The dates for panchak in the year 2016 are:

Now, with the help of this chart, you can easily schedule your important works before or after the Panchak. With this, it would be easy for you to avoid unnecessary hindrances in your work. It is a myth that none of the work should be done during Panchak. But, you will be amazed to know that some tasks can also be auspicious. Two of the constellations among the five are movable constellations. Those two constellations are Dhanishtha and Shatbhishare. Therefore, any work that is related to travelling and marketing will give positive results and it can be termed as fruitful period for such works.

Some of the main things that should completely be avoided during Panchak are:

  • Do not gather grass, wood and oil in the phase of Ghanistha constellation as it may cause fire.
  • South is the direction of Yam therefore avoid going to that direction.
  • During the time duration of Revati constellation abstain from constructing terrace.
  • Refrain from construction of a Charpai in the complete phase of panchak.
  • Any dead body must not be cremated without performing the remedy other it might cause 5 more deaths in the town. To avoid it shanthikarma should be performed.

These remedies will help you in carrying forward your task in Panchak 2016 without any difficulty. But, it is always best to avoid any of the prohibited tasks. With the reference of the mentioned chart, it is easier for you to plan your work accordingly and deal with the time wisely.
