Ancient sages and the Vedas, which hold their wisdom, have articulated since time immemorial that when an individual acts in harmony with the environment, the environment also responds in a harmonious manner taking the individual as a part of the whole. Hindu Panchang plays a vital role in helping its followers act in harmony with their environment by offering an insight into the important tithi (date) for a prosperous work to start. Without consulting a Panchang in Hindu religion, auspicious events like marriage ceremonies, civic affairs, important events, inaugurals, examinations, interviews, starting new business/project and fresh beginnings are not carried out.

Panchang, also known as Panchangam, is the Hindu calendar followed by the Vedic astrology. Hindu Panchang constitutes of 5 components, namely: Tithi (The Lunar Day), Vara (Day of the Week), Nakshatra (Lunar Mansion), Yoga (Luni-Solar Day) and Karana (Half Lunar Day). Panchang charts the movements of the Sun and the Moon, and tabulates the placement of these two celestial bodies and those of other planets for each day of the year for a pre-determined place (Longitude & Latitude) and time (24 Hour IST). The relevant data for a “fixed location” can be computed by accounting for the difference between the concerned Place and Time. “Vishva Vijay Panchang” carries information for 100 years, which is the rarest of all panchangs.

Put simply, a Panchang gives an individual an idea of an auspicious day, date and time to initiate an auspicious activity, and to ward off any negative impact and prevent avoidable struggles. mPanchang provides you extensive, ready-to-consult, and free information on Hindi Panchang.
