The Sacred Science of Numerology and our Hindu Calendar

The Hindu calendar is an integral part of the life of a practising Hindu. Naming a child, birth star, time, day. Fixing the marriage date and related attributes are very important- but quite often the lay person does not understand these details.

This presentation will take the audience through the basic fundamentals of the Panchangam (Hindu almanac)- right from historical aspects to current principles of applications.

There will also be a short coverage of Indian numerological principles.
