- Meditate to avoid negative thoughts in Holashtak, do not get angry and keep your mind calm
Holashtak is starting from Sunday, March 3, which will last until after Holika Dahan (March 28). Holashtak’s time will end on 29 March. It is forbidden to do auspicious actions on these days. According to Pt. Manish Sharma, Jyotishacharya of Ujjain, all the planets remain inauspicious during the time of Holashtak, due to this, one should avoid doing auspicious work on these days.
There is a religious belief in this regard that Hiranyakashyap, the king of the Asuras, started torturing Prahlada to kill Prahlada on the eighth day of the Shukla Paksha of Phalgun month. After torturing for eight days, Phaladha was seated in the fire with Holika on Phalgun Purnima. Devotee Prahlada endured persecution for eight days before Holi, due to which it is forbidden to do auspicious work in Holashtak.
Now is also the time of season change. The cold days are over and summer time is beginning. Health care should be taken in these days, otherwise seasonal diseases can dominate us. At this time, the position of the planets is not good. Due to this, most people have to face mental stress. Anger increases in nature.
During the days of Holashtak one should chant the mantra or names of his presiding deity. Offer prayers. Wake up early in the morning and meditate for a while. By doing this, negative thoughts of the mind end and positivity increases. If there is negativity in the days of Holashtak, it can have a very bad effect on our lives. That’s why keep thinking positive. Feed grass to a cow in a cowshed and donate money. Arrange for the food of the needy people. If you put your mind to religious deeds these days, then unrest can be overcome.
