What is a lunar calender?

By Monica Groover

Hello! We are reading from page 263 of the book ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO AYURVEDA
available on amazon.

I will be talking about the five parts of Panchangam or Five tenets of the Lunar calendar that make up the basis for Vedic Astrology called Jyotish.

These are Tithi (lunar date), Nakshatra (group of stars), Yoga (angles), Karana, and Vara (day). We will understand the Vedic unit of measurements- muhurta-kala, vara, etc. This is a small introduction of about 8 minutes. Hope you enjoy it.
