Yesterday (25th April 2023),was Sri Ramanujar Jayanthi (Chithirai Thiruvadhirai) and Sri Sankara Jayanthi (Vaishaka Panchami).

Why is the birth of one Guru based on Star and the other Guru based on Thithi? Can anyone please tell

  • Because Tamil Nadu focuses more on the nakshatra due to following the solar calendar. Same thing happens in the case of Janmashtami

  • It’s too detailed to explain in writing

  • @Adiyarkku, can you write whatever that is sufficient for the question? Not very detail. Just giving the important things alone.

    Okay, very brief. So, panchang comprises 5 parts which include nakshatra and tithi. Usually 90% of the times, the same nakshatra is supposed to come on the same tithi. So for example if at Bhagavan’s birth time it was Ashtami tithi in Bhadrapada Krishna paksha and Rohini was the nakshatra, usually every Janmashtami should somewhat overlap with Rohini nakshatra. North India and south India follow the panchang, so fir determining the dates, the tithi is determined (distance between sun and moon) and the nakshatra is also mentioned. Since we have the correct dates which roughly correspond to .1.
