Hindu Calendar - Year of The Lunisolar Calendar

Year of The Lunisolar Calendar

The new year day is the first day of the shukla paksha of Chaitra. In the case of adhika or kshaya months relating to Caitra, the aforementioned religious rules apply giving rise to the following results:

  • If an adhika Chaitra is followed by a nija Chaitra, the new year starts with the nija Caitra.
  • If an adhika Chaitra is followed by a Chaitra-Vaishākha kshaya, the new year starts with the adhika Caitra.
  • If a Caitra-Vaiśākha Kṣaya occurs with no adhika Chaitra before it, then it starts the new year.
  • If a Caitra-Phālguna Kṣaya' occurs, it starts the new year.

Famous quotes containing the words year of, calendar and/or year:

    The liberal wing of the feminist movement may have improved the lives of its middle- and upper-class constituency—indeed, 1992 was the Year of the White Middle Class Woman—but since the leadership of this faction of the feminist movement has singled out black men as the meta-enemy of women, these women represent one of the most serious threats to black male well-being since the Klan.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    To divide one’s life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.
    Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)

    Like to the time o’ th’ year between the extremes
    Of hot and cold, he was nor sad nor merry.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
