Panchak is said to be such a constellation in the Hindu calendar in which auspicious works are not done. According to Hindu astrology, Panchak is not considered an auspicious constellation and Panchak is considered to be the sum of malefic constellations. The special yoga formed by the combination of Nakshatras is called Panchak. When the Moon stays on Aquarius and Pisces, then that time is called Panchak.
When the moon transits on these five constellations, the five Nakshatras are Ghristha, Shatabhisha, Poorva Bhadrapada, Uttara Bhadrapada and Revati, then that period is called Panchak. In ancient astrology, it is generally believed that certain tasks are not performed in Panchak.
It is forbidden to travel in the south direction in Panchak, perform ghostly cremation, break wood, straw, pillar, store straw, brass, copper and wood, put the roof of the house, weave cots, chairs, mats, etc., making mattresses. In Panchakas, there is a possibility of five times of loss-benefit and disease-death etc.
It is believed that if a family member dies in Panchak, then at the time of cremation, by taking five sandalwood woods along with the dead body with complete rituals, Panchak Dosha ends.
