Chaitra Navratri 2024: Do not do these things for the first 5 days during Chaitra Navratri, many difficulties may arise!



In the Hindu religion, doing any auspicious or beneficial work in the month of Kharmas is considered inauspicious. Since the festival of Chaitra Navratri starts on the 9th of April and Kharmas ends on the 13th of April, hence the shadow of Kharmas will be there for the first 5 days of Chaitra Navratri. Due to this, no auspicious work will be done during the first 5 days of Chaitra Navratri, but from the sixth day, all the auspicious works like havan, puja, marriage, engagement etc. will start.

According to astrology, nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshipped during Chaitra Navratri. This year, Chaitra Navratri starts on 9th April and ends on 17th April. Auspicious works are done during Navratri, but due to the effect of Kharmas, these works cannot be done for 5 days.

During Kharmas, all types of auspicious and beneficial works stop because doing them during this time does not yield auspicious results. If auspicious work is done during Kharmas, it may have negative consequences later. During Kharmas it is advisable to avoid all 16 Sanskars along with purchases of land, property, ornaments and jewellery. One should also avoid starting any new business during Kharmas.

Marriage, havan, katha, engagement etc. should be avoided during the first 5 days of Chaitra Navratri, as many difficulties may have to be faced later.

Why are auspicious works not done?

According to astrology, when the ruling planet Sun transits into Sagittarius and Pisces, this period is called Kharmas. It is believed that during this period the Sun and Jupiter serve each other. Therefore, their influence on the earth diminishes and organizing auspicious functions during this period invites obstacles. Therefore, only prayers, chanting and penance are done during this period.
