There are five elements of panch anga. These are as follows:
- Tithi (vedic date of your birth)
- Vara (day of your birth)
- Nakshatra (Star constellation you are born into)
- Karana (Your career)
- Yoga (your engagement in society
The above elements are just sub divisions of time. If rashi is 30 degree or 2 hours or 120 minutes, Nakshatra is 13 degree 20 minutes span.
Half of the Tithi is called Karana. When the moon completes 6 degrees in circular motion to sun, one Karana is completed. A Tithi (vedic date) has two Karanas – one in the first half and one in the latter. There are a total of 11 Karanas – Bava, Balava, Kaulava, Taitil, Gar, Vanij, Vishti, Shakuni, Chatushpad, Nag and Kistughan. The effects and lordships of these karanas are explained below.
Lets see how many karana are there and how they affect the Career with some examples.
