What is panchang?
We all have heard of the panchang that has been used since time immemorial. Panchang is a report that comprises the placement of the five angas or elements of any day, viz., naal, tithi, nakshatram, yogam and karanam.
Do I need to know about astrology to use ePanchang?
Not at all. The usual panchang cannot be understood by people without a basic knowledge of astrology. To address this problem, ePanchang was introduced, which could be easily used by anyone, even without a basic understanding of astrology.
Essentially, ePanchang is a precise tool that could be used by anyone, to make informed decisions on important events of their daily life.
What does panchang provide me?
ePanchang provides you advice on dates for five different categorization, viz., Business, Health, Travel, Asset and Auspicious , apart from a General category.
For example, you may use ePanchang to decide a date for your newborn’s naming ceremony, deciding on a date to start your new business, conduct an major medical operation, purchase a new car or house.
Why is panchang good for you?
ePanchang results will be more appropriate than the general panchang for making decisions, because ePanchang makes its suggestions based on your place, date and time of birth, making a panchang, customized, just for you.
Will it work for a person in Mexico, Italy or Australia?
Definitely. Wherever you are placed in the world, you will get suggestions appropriate to your location.
