Planning for life in tune with the universe. The Hindu Calendar has Hindu festivals, nakshatra, tithi, rahukala, pradosh, yoga, sunrise/sunset and more. It is a sophisticated tool for planning, not unlike a western farmer's almanac. It provides vital information about astrological factors, planets and stars--aspects of our subtle environment which are unseen but strongly felt. With this esoteric knowledge at our disposal, we come to understand the characteristics of the planets and the stars and how they relate to the human psyche. Read more about the panchangam...

Please note that each panchangam is calculated for standard time, not daylight savings time. Also, our Hindu calendar follows a traditional South Indian new year which begins approximately April 15th.
Until your city or country is listed here, you can calculate the ending times of nakshatras, tithis, yogas etc. in your location by simply adding or subtracting from the times in one of the calendars listed above. (This does not apply to sunrise, sunset or the kalas).
