Understand the reason for publishing advertisements in the Android version of Sanatan Panchangs (Almanacs)

The Android and iOs versions of Sanatan Panchangs (Almanacs) are published free-of-cost with the intention of bringing awakening of Dharma. We have decided to publish advertisements in the Android version of the Almanac so that the expenses on various aspects such as compilation, editing, translation into various languages, formatting are met and the mission of awakening of Dharma becomes effective. The readers should note that the intention of taking advertisements is to recover losses, not making profit!

Sanatan Panchangs (Almanacs) will not compromise on our principles !

Though we take advertisements, the intention is important. We will not use the funds for personal gains, rather use these for bringing about awakening of Dharma and protecting the Nation. If we were to be financially sound, we would not collect advertisements. We will not compromise on our principles and therefore, not take advertisements for products such as gutkha, cigarettes etc. which are harmful for health and the well-being of the society. The readers should note this and cooperate.

Spiritual importance of Sanatan’s sattvik pictures

The Dharmashastras say that closer a picture or Idol of a Deity is to its original form, more they attract the Principle of that Deity. This helps in quicker awakening of bhav of the worshipper.  The pictures of Deities in these Almanacs have been made by Sanatan’s seeker-artists as their seva, according to the science of Spirituality and under the guidance of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Jayant Athavale (Founder of Sanatan Sanstha). Due consideration has also been given to the science of vibrations while making these pictures. Many people have had spiritual experiences about the sattvikta of these pictures.

Importance of Dharmashikshan

The scientific way of celebrating Religious festivals, Holy festivals, Vowed religious observances and religious rituals, underlying reasons and their benefits have been included in these Sanatan Panchangs. These Almanacs are a medium to impart Dharmashikshan to the society so that the efforts for God-realisation are from the spiritual perspective and that every individual gets due benefits from his/her efforts.

Why are Sanatan Almanacs published at the beginning of the English New Year and as per Druk-siddhant?

The main aim of publishing Sanatan Panchangs (Almanacs) is to impart education on Dharma to Hindus and create awakening about Dharma in them. Most Hindus purchase calendars at the beginning of the English year (January to December); most people in the States of Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka etc. use a calendar based on Druk-siddhant. Therefore, to reach maximum number of people, ‘Sanatan Panchangs’ are based on Druk-siddhant is  published at the beginning of the English year . (Surya-siddhant and Druk-siddhant are the ancient methods of preparing an Almanac. Please note that because of some difference in preparing them, at times the days of Holy festivals, Religious festivals and celebrations may differ.)

Why no astrological forecasts in these Sanatan Panchangs (Almanacs) ?

Publishing astrological forecasts in Almanacs and Periodicals implies that about 1/12th of the human population (that is about 50 crore people out of a 600 crore population) shares the same future. This is incorrect and hence, astrological forecasts are not published in these Almanacs. Instead, importance is given to presenting information on spiritual practice, which alone helps us in overcoming destiny and leading a blissful life.

Why do we use the ‘Kaliyug Varsha’ calculation in the Sanatan Panchangs (Almanacs) ?

One of the aims of publishing these Sanatan Almanacs is to propagate Hindu culture and to create awareness about the state of our Society, Nation and Dharma today. For readers to understand and appreciate the superiority of our ancient Hindu methods of time calculation and traditions, we have given importance to the ‘Kaliyug Varsha’.
