  Vedic Calendar: Kadavul Hindu Panchangam
Panchanga, a Sanskrit word, means "five limbs," which refers to the fact that every panchangam includes the five basic elements of tithi (lunar day), nakshatra (the constellation the moon is aligned with), karana (half-day), yoga (a particular angle of the sun and moon) and vara or vasara (solar weekday).
Panchangams furnish other astronomical information which is extensively used by astrologers, as well as the times of all forthcoming religious events.
Of course, inner truths are not confined to rishis of the past, and several aspects of this panchangam were unfolded in recent times by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami to assist humanity in the technological age.

 Language in India
Panchangam is a handy book that helps observant Hindus to determine the most auspicious times for their rituals, festivals, celebrations, and pursuits of various sorts including marriage, undertaking travels, etc. Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, and Jains also use Panchangams or contents of Panchangams, to a certain extent.
Thus, even though Panchangams are intended for family use, a correct understanding and interpretation of most of the contents require some help from others acquainted with astrological terms.
But the importance of Panchangam still continues mainly because while technology may locate the ground water, the observant Hindus’ desire to find the most auspicious time to dig the ground is still fulfilled by Panchangams.
