Basics of Panchanga

Happy Ugadi and Durmukhi Nama Samvatsara!

Being a Software Engineer helps in many ways, and one such is able to get information on the net and knowing how to search. One such great article I stumbled upon was this one when I was googling “How to read Panchanga”.

Tomorrow being Ugadi, New Year for all Hindus, it is a great opportunity to learn about the Panchanga. It is a PDF which you all can download and read at your leisure.

An amazing article by Shri. S. Narasimha Rao. Thanks Sir for the wonderful document. See link below.

The new year for all Hindus starts from April 8th 2016. This year it is Durmukhi Nama Samvatsara(ದುರ್ಮುಖ ನಾಮ ಸಂವತ್ಸರ). Please check your local calendars for exact date.

Panchangas for Uttaradi Math and Raghavendra Mutta is available online and posted in this blog as well.

During Ugadi, the leaves of neem also called Bevu ಬೇವು is mixed with jaggery called Bella ಬೆಲ್ಲ; and is distributed on the occasion. Neem, which is extremely bitter in taste( Kahi) , and jaggery which is sweet and delicious, signify the two different aspects of human life – joy and sorrow.

And here is the lyrics for the famous song by Shri Bendre, which we used to hear on major radio channels, Yuga Yugadi Kaledaru:

yuga yugAdi kaLedarU yugAdi maraLi barutide
hosa varushake hosa harushava hosatu hosatu tarutide

honge hUva tongalalli bhrungada sangIta kEli matte kELabarutide
bEvina kahi bALinalli hUvina nasugampu sUsi jIvakaLeya tarutide

varushakondu hosatu janma harushakondu hosatu neleyu akhila jIvajAtake
onde ondu janmadali onde bAlya onde haraya namagadashTE EtakO

niddegomme nitya maraNa edda sala navIna janana namage Eke

bAradOelE sanatkumAradEva elE sAhasi chiranjIva ninage lIle sEradO

yuga yugAdi kaLedarU yugAdi maraLi barutide
hosa varushake hosa harushava hosatu hosatu tarutide nammanashTe maretide
