Hindu Calendar 2008…

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on January 1, 2008

Hindu Calendar

There are two main theories governing the Hindu Calendar, these two theories have come up with two entirely different calendars. The other calendars are the Lunar Calendar Solar Calendar Kaliyuga Era Kollam Era Bengali San.

According to the Hindu Saka Calendar, we enter 1922 this year. This calendar was developed during the Saka Era in 78 AD. The Saka calendar which is based on the Hindu Astronomy of the holy Vedas is a lunar calendar unlike the Gregorian Solar Calendar. And a section of Hindus in India and Indonesia follow it even today. Indian National Calendar follows the Saka System.
