Story Of Kharmas
Lord Suryadev constantly revolves around the universe by riding on a chariot drawn by seven horses. Once his horses were very tired of hunger and thirst due to continuous walking and not getting rest. Lord Suryadev took him to the bank of a pond, but only then did he realize that if the chariot stops, it will be a disaster. Only then two donkeys were present on the banks of the pond.
Lord Suryadev leaves the horses to drink water and rest and joins the donkeys to his chariot. Due to this the speed of the chariot slows down, yet as soon as the cycle of one month is completed, by then the horses have also got rest, thus this sequence continues and is called Kharmas.
