Hindu calendar or Panchang

Hindu Calendar is the traditional astrology calendar of India which has been in use since ancient times. The Hindu Calendar - also called Panchang or Panchanga, is used to determine the time and dates of Hindu festivals, religious ceremonies, muhurat timing etc, making it an inseparable piece of Indian culture. The Hindu calendar distinctly indicates the 5 elements (pancha - anga) of time division - vara, tithi, nakshatra, yoga and karana.

Lunar, Solar and Lunisolar calendar

Since ancient time, both lunisolar as well as solar calendar is in use in India. Lunar calendar months strictly follow the lunar cycle of two lunar fortnights (Shukla paksha & Krishna paksha). Interestingly, lunisolar calendar is basically a lunar calendar which has some intercalation rules to synchronize it with the solar year.

Leap months (adhik maasa) and occasionally, skipped months (kshaya maasa) are introduced to achieve this. In a solar calendar the months are aligned with rashi or zodiac. Each month begins with sankranti (entry of sun into zodiac). Malayalam calendar, Bengali calendar and Tamil calendar are examples of Indian solar calendars.

Amanta & Purnimanta System

Hindu calendar either follows amanta system or purnimanta system to identify the end of a lunar month. On the amanta calendar, one month ends and the next begins with amavasya tithi. Telugu calendar & Gujarati calendar are examples of amanta calendar. Purnimanta system reckons month end/month start from full moon to full moon. The traditional Hindu calendar popular in north India is a purnimanta calendar.

Hindu New Year

Based on new year month a calendar follows, Hindu calendars can be further classified as Chaitradi (beginning with Chaitra month), Ashadadi (beginning with Ashad), Karthikadi (beginning with Karthik).

Samvatsaram & Year Names

Shalivahana Shaka (Saka samvat), Vikram samvat and Kali era are the 3 most popular eras associated with the Hindu calendar. Year 2021 corresponds to Vikram samvatsar 2077 and Saka Samvatsar 1942 starting from Chaitra 01 (new year of respective calendars). Apart from this, some regional versions of Hindu calendar follow a practice of naming each year according to Jovian year cycle (60 year cycle).
