What types of calendars do you use to showcase festivals and religious events?

Please note that there is not a single variety of calendars used to determine the religious occasion or festival. There are many of them for this purpose. However, what narrows down to the specific types of calendars includes three types, such as solar calendar, lunar calendar, and lunisolar calendars.

Is there any festival in India that relies on the Hindu calendar?

Since India showcases its cultural vibrancy through festivals, we can say each festival follows a certain rule of the land. However, it depends largely on the cyclic movement of the Sun and the Moon. They are the cosmic bodies connecting the occurrence of festivals in India. Festivals, such as Raksha Bandhan, Maha Shivratri, Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, etc. depend on the Hindu calendar.

How does a calendar denote Purnima and Amavasya days?

A period of fifteen days is known as Krishna Paksha as denoted in the Hindu calendar. The Krishna Paksha begins on the day of Purnima, or the full moon day. The day attains its peak on Amavasya, the New Moon Day. According to the English calendar, there is a total of 12 full moons. However, it reduces to two full moons in a month during the occurrence of a Blue Moon. This means ending with a total of thirteen Purnimas in a year. Amavasya denotes a period of a moonless night. In totality, there are twelve New Moon days in a year.

How do you differentiate between a calendar and a panchang?

Both a calendar and a panchang differ in terms of the fact that calendars are generally used to identify days, dates, months, and the year. On the other hand, the use of a panchang serves the purpose of determining auspicious Tithi, Muhurat, planetary calculation, etc.

Is there any accuracy in a calendar?

Details of Hindu festivals and religious occasions mentioned in the calendar on our website are accurate and comprehensive. We leave no stone unturned in furnishing factual information concerning important Hindu festivals and events.
