Buying a house? Hosting an annaprasan or a grihapravesh ceremony? Or perhaps you need your child's horoscope for their wedding? The Panchang offers a codified daily guide to auspicious dates and timings throughout the year for important life events, religious festivals and ceremonies, and special occasions. A 'panchang' is the combined analysis of 'panch angs' or five attributes, namely, day of the week, tithi, nakshatra, yog and karan - each of these elements and its impact is taken into careful consideration to arrive at an auspicious day. This first-ever English panchang, based on the famed 150-year-old Gupta Press Bengali panjika, also explains, in a simple, easy-to-understand manner, what a panchang is, what its different elements signify, and how you can use it. For all those who wish to know the astrological configurations for any special event, this is an indispensable tool.
