5-3-6 Panchak / Panchak Nakshatra

Panchak / Panchak Nakshatra

What is Panchak / Which are Panchang Nakshatras
Panchak is a group of  five Nakshatras (constellations). These five Nakshatras are Dhanishthaa (last two partsquarters),Shatabhisha,Poorvaabhadrapad,Uttaraa Bhaadrapad and Revati. 
There is a misconception about Panchak among people.Some people think that the period of Panchak is inauspicious so auspicious tasks should not be done during the period of Panchak. But the fact is not so.
During Panchak only the following five tasks are prohibited :-
1.Journey in the south direction.
2.Putting roof on the house (placing the RCC roof of the house).
3.Making a Charpai (A cot or a bed)
4.Collection of fuel ,particularly fire wood for using as fuel.
5.Cremation of a dead body.(Note - But cremating the dead body can not be avoided,so five dummy dead bodies are made of flour or Kush and they are burnt too. Shanti karm is also performed while burning the dead body.)
