What Is Kharmas 2024? 

The Kharmas begins when the Sun transits into either Jupiter’s zodiac sign, Sagittarius or Pisces zodiac sign. It occurs not once but twice a year which is in December-January and March-April. According to Vedic Astrology, the Kharmas are not considered auspicious and all the auspicious activities are stopped during this period. However, if one keeps worshiping Gods, Goddess, Brahmins and elders during this period then we can expect auspicious results and also blessings. Apart from this, one can also worship Lord Vishnu as per the traditions and recite Vishnu Shastra regularly. 

Why Are Auspicious Things Avoided During Kharmas 2024? 

Religiously, it is believed that during Kharmas, the Lord Sun focuses on serving his Guru by entering the zodiac sign of Jupiter. In such circumstances, its influence over the works of the world will reduce, which means that anything done auspicious during this period will not give great results. That’s why it is completely avoided.
