Panchang in Hindu astrology or Indian Vedic astrology is a sort of Hindu Almanac. Literally it means five “limbs” (Part) or Organs of Sidhdhant Jyotish. These five organs are :- 1. Tithi or Date, 2. Var or Days, 3. Nakshatra or Constellation, 4. Yoga (sum of the Sun & Moon Speed) and 5. Karan or Half part of tithi. Basically Panchang is used to match the current positions of Planets with the positions of Planets in a person’s Astrological Chart so as to find and if required, to look ahead to find astrologically good days and time for that person. It is an ancient method to synchronize our action with good time so as to reduce obstacles or barriers and increase the chances for success. Taking into consideration of local longitude and latitude Panchang includes the time of Sunrise & Sunset, Tithi, Muhurta and all festivals. It also includes the calculation of RAHUKALAM, which has a very important place in Vedic Astrology as it help in determine the inauspicious time period with in a complete day for starting any new important work. The Rahukalam is calculated with the help of Sunrise and Sunset time. Hence, this is obvious that it will differ from place to place. Like Rahukalam there are periods known as Yamghantkal during which it is considered to the inauspicious to start any important work.
