Panchak is the time when no auspicious work is to be done or begun. It is during the time of Panchak, when you initiate a work and you will never achieve the desired results.

Let’s first find out what does Panchak mean?

Meaning Of Panchak & Panchak Yog

The word Panchak has come from the word Panch, which means five. Panchak Yog or Panchak Kaal is that period of five days of every month of the Hindu calendar , during which Moon transits from Kumbha (Aquarious) to Meen (Pisces) zodiac signs. The duration in which the Moon is placed in the Aquarius or Pisces is also known as the Dhanishtha Panchak. This time of Panchak is considered extremely unfavourable as the work begun during this time is never accomplished in one go. Hence, before doing any auspicious work this year, do not forget to check the Panchaka Kaal dates in 2016.

Effects Of Panchak Nakshatras

As per the “Garuda Purana” in the Hindu mythology, soul of the person who dies during Panchaka Kaal, does not get peace. Thus, this Panchak Kaal is considered to be an unfavourable time for performing the final rites of the dead.

Now, when we know what Panchak Kaal means, let’s find out what could be the effects of Panchak Nakshatras on one’s life.

  1. Dhanishta Nakshatra : This Nakshatra results in accidents, which may occur due to fire.

  4. Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra : Uttar is responsible for payments of fine or any such charges.
  5. Revati Nakshatra : This Nakshatra may result in financial crunches or economic troubles.

The five Nakshatras have clear effects on one’s life. Let’s take a look at what measures you can adopt to protect yourself during the upcoming time of Panchak in 2016.
