Panchang

A Panchang is a detailed Hindu calendar which takes into account five factors of any given day as per Indian Vedic scriptures to provide information useful for astrologers to forecast celestial phenomena, and also to outline auspicious and inauspicious time frames for important occasions such as marriage, education, career, travel, etc. The five aspects taken into account are day of the week (vaar); tithi or the lunar day; nakshatra or the constellation; yoga; and karan. You can get your region-specific Panchang by entering the name of your country and city in the boxes below.

Panchang- It's Significance & Methodology

The significance of Panchang is that it basically gives you information on how to live in harmony with your environment, which you can do by optimally utilizing this Hindu calendar for planning important events in your life. The Panchang is used fundamentally to match the current planetary configurations with the position of the heavenly bodies in your astrological chart, so that the auspicious days can be pin-pointed in your best interests. The preparation of a Panchang involves elaborate mathematical calculations and a deep understanding of astronomical phenomena, but in practice it is prepared as per the set formulae outlined by Vedic sages and scholars.
