Panchanga denotes five branches, five dimensions of time: varana (day of the week), tithi (lunar day), nakshatra (lunar constellation), karana (half a day), solar-lunar yoga. These factors form the basis of the Indian calendar. Panchanga is used to analyze the astrological situation at the time of birth and for predictive purposes, to determine the recommended actions for a given period of time. To determine the most important recommended actions, it is necessary to examine other astrological indicators along with Panchanga.
