Panchang / Hindu Calendar
What is Panchang
Panchang in Hindu Vedic Astrology or Indian Jyotish Astrology is a kind of Hindu calendar. Actually, it means Five limbs, indicating five parts of Hindu Panchang. It is an Astrological journal that gives beneficial astrological data important for an Astrologer. It is referred to for finding and choosing a suitable and fortunate time for important events, rituals or activities like wedding, learning, journey, starting new avenues or scheme, examination, interview etc.
The Hindu Panchang calendar is a complex calendar for scheduling, not dissimilar then a western Farmer’s Almanac. It gives important information about horoscopic factors, stars and planets-aspects of our meticulous atmosphere which are unobserved but strongly sensed. With this ulterior knowledge before us, we come to recognize the features of the stars and the planets and how they connect to the human psyche.
Astrological Vedic Calendar is not a regular almanac or calendar. It is far more intricate than the general Gregorian calendar generally used in the West and far more beneficial. It is discovered after the conventional Panchangams used all the way through Sri Lanka and nearby countries, which employ the Nirayana (sidereal) horoscopic system.
Panchanga is a Sanskrit word which means five limbs, as mentioned earlier, stressing the fact that every Panchangam comprises the five basic components which are given below:
Tithi: it means lunar day.
Nakshatra: the constellation the moon is aligned with.
Karanaa: it means half of Tithi.
Yoga: it is a particular angle of the sun and moon.
Vara or Vasara: it is a solar weekday.
Panchangams provide other cosmological information which is widely used by astrologers, as well as the times of all upcoming holy events. Most recent Panchangams, such as Vedic Hindu Calendar, also comprise Gregorian calendar information, which has got acceptance all over the world.
