Sometimes transliterated as: Pancangasuddhi, PaJcaJgaZuddhi, Paycaygashuddhi

Pañcañgaśuddhi literally means ‘holy period according to the pañcāṅga or almanac’.

Any auspicious rite should be performed when all the five aspects dealt with in a pañcāṅga[1] are deemed as auspicious. This is pañcāṅgaśuddhi. These five aspects have been dealt with in detail in pañcāṅga.


  1. Pañcāṅga means religious almanac.
