  1. A famous spiritual teacher of recent times said that the concept of panchaangam (like most concepts in Hinduism) has outer as well as inner meanings.

    Generally we consider panchaagam to mean astrological charts – They have a rightful place in our lives, of course.
    However, the Vedas used this term because the ancient sages wanted to kick-start people’s inquiry. “Panchaangam” literally means “5 limbs” (pancha=5; angam=limb), namely the 5 senses. Every human being has panchaangam within himself/herself.

    The spiritual meaning of ‘panchaanga sravanam’ (listening to astrologers interpret star-charts of the coming year), then, is to reflect upon the proper use of the 5 senses on this New Year Day, and to resolve upon sense-control for the coming year.

    If we applied this inner meaning, our self-control itself would guard us against the storms of life, even if the astrological charts themselves were unfavourable! But alas, how many people take this inner meaning to heart?
