Karana and its Karakam
Author(s): KR Ramesh
Abstract: A Panchang Karana is based on the Lunar day of Tithi. There are 30 days in a lunar month, so it gives rise to 60 Karanas in a month. So, technically a Karana is half of a Tithi and is considered as complete only when the difference between the location of Sun and Moon crosses a multiple of 6-degrees.
