When is Ugadi in 2011? What is the date of Sri Rama Navami in 2011? When Janmashtami in 2011? Various Panchangas create confusion in our minds that when is a Hindu festival in Andhra Pradesh? To make the Hindus get rid of the confusion in festival dates, senior Panchanga siddhantis decided to have a meeting in Basara Sri Saraswati Temple on October 3rd. Siddhantis will standardize the Telugu Panchangam or almanac.
The Telugu Panchangam is based on the calculations of Bhaskara II dating back to the 12th century. The Telugu lunar calendar has a cycle of 60 years and the interpolation of the solar calendar has often led to differences among siddhantis on when the actual muhurtham of an event or festival starts.
30 senior panchang siddhantis will participate in the meet which will be headed by Shri Tangirala Poornachandra Siddhanti.
