There are also many beliefs related to death in the Panchak period. It is believed that if a death of a person occurs during the Panchak period, then there is a possibility of death of five other members in his family. To avoid this, there is a provision to cremate the body of the deceased person along with an effigy of Kush during the Panchak period.
According to Garuda Purana, when there is a death of a person during the Panchak period, then the cremation should be done with the oblation of the mantra of the respective constellation. The oblation given according with the law, gives virtuous results. If possible, the cremation should be done in a pilgrimage place during this period. This gives peace to the soul of the deceased.
According to another belief, there is a tradition of celebrating Panchak for five days since the time when Ravana was killed by Lord Rama. Panchak period is considered very inauspicious time in Sanatan Dharma. According to Vedic Astrology, it is forbidden to do any special work on this day.
