Makar Sankranti Kharmas

As per the Hindu Panchang, Makar Sankranti will be celebrated on Dwadashi Tithi of Shukla Paksha. This festival has a special place in the realms of Hinduism. With the Sun transiting in Capricorn, the Kharmas will end and auspicious events will start again.   

In spite of the end of Kharmas, no marriage celebrations would be observed because of the combustions of Jupiter on February 22. This state of combustion will remain till March 23, 2022, and therefore, the observance of marriages is not considered auspicious. Also, Holashtak will last from March 04 to March 09. Even in this duration, marriage and other auspicious activities are prohibited.   

Significance of Makar Sankranti

The importance of this day lies in the fact that all auspicious events restart from this very day. To sink their old and present sins, people take a dip in the holy rivers and donate black sesame. At some places, this day is known as ‘Khichdi’ or ‘Uttarayan’.   

If we talk of the historical fact, this day, Lord Sun goes to meet his son, Saturn. In Astrology, Saturn is known as the ruling lord of Capricorn and that is why this day is known as Makar Sankranti.   

Not only this but it is also believed that Bhisma Pitamah renounced the world on this day and hence, the significance of this day enhances manifold. Also, the harshness of winters starts declining. It is also said that Ganga disappeared into the ocean on this day and therefore, Ganga Snan is considered to be highly auspicious.
