 She is an astrologer, people go to her to know their future, discuss their problems and seek solutions. Prama Chopra, says, “Apart from predictions a major part of astrology relates to remedies.’ She shares her insight on Tree Worship, back in the day remedy for problem solving and its relevance in today’s times

In today’s astrology, the one which is followed by masses is only a segment of Birth Astrology. People go to consult an astrologer and follow difficult rituals,ceremonies and spend lot of money in buying snake oil, more of such things which are difficult to procure and expensive too.

Whereas simple remedy of tree worship is easily ignored as it may not have that much commercial profit as the other remedies like gems, assigned Pujas and complex rituals may have some direct or indirect benefit to the advisor.

What do scriptures say?

The ancient text Narad Puran (6th century compilation) describes astrology along with Vedanga, where association of trees from Vedic deities who govern zodiac and Nakshatra is established. It is believed that the origin of trees, plants and roots is from Lord Brahma’s hair and hence very essential to existence of life not just mankind.

The plants and trees which were inherently safeguarded in ancient times were regarded as Gods & Goddesses and sighted as Lord Shiva’s Rudra Swaroop, where he consumed poison and distributed nectar. The same connotation is for the green belt, plants give out oxygen after utilizing and absorbing carbon dioxide from the environment.

The Vedic Jyotish believes that by worshipping a particular tree/plant according to their birth Nakshatra, people could get free from economic, health or social problems. Watering the particular plant, circumbating around it a few times in reverence, these rituals apart from their astrological benefits greatly helped the person mentally and emotionally as well as widely protected the green belt in ancient times. By virtue of these beliefs, protection of trees and ecosystem were assured for the coming ages.

Nakshatra & Zodiac

Astrology in Hindu households plays a very important part in day to day life. The new age households may not openly accept the relevance of their trust in astrology, but the reality lies in the closed doors and family traditions.

The celestial spare of 360°divided in 12 parts is zodiac or the 12 Rashis as we know. In our Vedic system, a further calibration is given which is commonly known as Nakshatra. 360°/27. Each Nakshatra has one ruling or exalting Devta.

Nakshatra is based on the planetary positions at the time of birth and accordingly a particular type of plant is associated with it. Here is a brief list of plants according to Nakshatra.

The History, Science and Mathematics of Indian (Hindu हिंदू) and Other Calendars

History of Calendars

The History, Science and Mathematics of Indian (Hindu हिंदूand Other Calendars

A book by Rajesh Kumar Chopra




Multiple calendar systems are being followed in this large country, India, with diverse cultures; and though each of them is individually accurate based on its adopted principles, the difference is not easily understood due to mingling of them over many centuries. Another highlight of the confusion is the names of the months being same in most of the Hindu calendars.

A festival falling on different dates in different years is a common feature of all religions. For Hindus, the Hōlī Festival may occur on any day from March 1 to March 29; for Muslims the Īd may happen on any day of the year; whereas for Christians, the Easter Sunday may occur from March 22 to April 25 or as celebrated by some orthodox churches from April 3 to May 10. This does not happen arbitrarily, but there is Simple Science and Mathematics behind this.

Before going through the chapters, one must understand that the simplicity is not the Nature’s nature. Though the Nature follows its set of rules, it does not like round numbers, as it has an affinity to fractions and variations. Take the example of the ratio between the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is denoted by a Greek Letter Pi (π) which is an irrational number, i.e. its value cannot be expressed exactly as a fraction or decimals. Though you can do some approximations, like 22/7 or 355/113, or say, represent it till 10 digits as 3.14159265359. People have calculated its value even till the 2,000,000,000,000,000th digit.

It would have been wonderful if we had exactly 4 weeks in a month. Counting of weeks would have been so much easier. Or each month could have been only of 30 days, a year of 360 days, and of course, no leap year. A lot better would have been a year of 100 days and 10 month in a year. But it is not. And therefore, I am writing this book with the objective of making the subject easy to understand. You may use your discretion in case of any difference of opinion or if you find any inconsistency which could have crept in inadvertently while collecting facts and figures from different sources. I have also used हिंदीHindī spellings (देवनागरी Devanāgarī script) for some words for Indian readers.

I also acknowledge the other scholars, whose views and citations have been indirectly reflected in this book. Brought to my knowledge I shall be happy to include their reference.

The objective of writing this book is to make people understand the calendar rather than to Re-Search.

I would highly appreciate all the suggestions and comments for any improvement.
