Importance Of Hindu Calender

Hindu Calendar provides an handy, easy-access version of your traditional print-copy calendar on your iOS device. It provides a look-n-feel of traditional calendars that we all have been using for years. Based on Hindu Panchang, it distinctly marks out Thithis for every day, fasting days such as Sankashti, Ekadashi, Shivrathri, and so on. Major Hindu festivals and holidays are prominently displayed on the calendar.

Years before the modern English Calendar -- birth of Christ -- ancient Indian scholars devised a comprehensive calendar by systematically studying the Vedas and the movement and positions of planetary bodies and stars. This calendar was prepared in the form of an almanac called the Panchang. The Kalanirnay is a very popular Hindu calendar which is a combination of a Calendar and an Almanac and they call it the "Calmanac" . It is looked upon as an advisor and guide.

It is not uncommon to have some members of the same family celebrate their birthdays according to the Hindu Calendar while others follow the Gregorian one. Both calendars are accepted in government, metropolitan and municipal offices, and in schools and businesses. For the people of India, time has always been measured in a spiritual and scientific calendar called the Panchang. Chronicling five thousand years of Indian civilisation, the Panchang lists festivals that honour and celebrate the gods and legends of India. It evokes the universe through mathematical calulations that predict weather, events, epidemics and personal fortune. For Hindus, the Gregorian calendar is a new meaning of time introduced and instituted by the British in India. While the Gregorian calendar is still used by the people and government of India, the Panchang has always been the spiritual expression of time for the Hindus and a guide to a life close to God and religion.

A panchānga (Sanskrit: पञ्चाङ्गम् pañcāṅgam, Telugu: ప౦చా౦గము, Tamil: பஞ்சாங்கம், Kannada: ಪಂಚಾಂಗ, Malayalam: പഞ്ചാംഗം,Sinhalese: පඤචාංග) is a Hindu calendar and almanac, which follows traditional units of Indian timekeeping, and presents important dates and their calculations in a tabulated form. It is sometimes spelled Pancanga, Panchanga, Panchaanga, or Panchānga, and is pronounced Panchānga. Pachangas are used in Jyotisha. In Eastern India, including Assam, Bengal, Orisa the Panchangam is referred to as Panjika.

Panchāngams are published in India by many learned authors, societies, academies, and universities. Different publications differ only minutely, at least for a casual or un-trained reader. They forecast celestial phenomena such as solar eclipses, forecast weather (rain, dryspells) as well as more mundane occurrences. The study of Panchāngams involves understanding Rasi phala (also pronounced 'Rashi phala'), the impact of the signs of the zodiac on the individual. Astrologers consult the Panchāngam to set auspicious dates for weddings, corporate mergers, and other worldly activities as per religion. The actual casting of a Panchāngam involves elaborate mathematical work involving high level of spherical geometry and sound understanding of astronomical phenomena, such as sidereal movements of heavenly bodies. However, in practice the tabulation is done on the basis of short-cut formulations as propounded by ancient Vedic sages and scholars.

typical Panchāngam may state tabulations of positions of Sun, Moon, and other planets for every day of the year on a fixed place (longitude, latitude) and time of day (in 24-hour format IST). The users calculate the remaining data using the their relative difference from this fixed place and time. There are several panchāngas that contain information for more than one year. There is one Vishvavijaya Panchāngam that is for 100 years. The theories propounded in the two scriptures, Surya Siddhanta and Grahalaghava formed the basis for the myriad calendars or Panchāngas in the past in different regions of the country - a culturally complex system.
