Legend/Katha Concerning Kharmas

The Sanskrit word Khar means donkey (Gadha). As per the prevailing legend pertaining to Kharmas, it is said that once, Surya Dev was revolving around the universe on the chariot of seven horses and he was not allowed to stop anywhere. It was said that if he had stopped, then all the activities would have stopped on the same day. But the horses attached to the chariot got thirsty and tired due to lack of rest. Seeing this, Surya Dev got worried and took the chariot to the banks of the river so that the horses could quench their thirst and get some rest. 

All of a sudden, Lord Sun came to know that if he stopped his chariot then all the activities on the earth would have stopped and troubles would have taken place. Then Surya Dev saw two donkeys (Khars) at the banks of the pond. He left all the horses for consuming water and taking rest and attached the two donkeys with his chariot so that he would not stop. Although the donkey slowed down the chariot, the rotation of one month got completed somehow and the horses took rest meantime. Now, he attached the horses with his chariot and the same continued throughout the year and a solar month i.e. Kharmas falls in every solar year.
