Butte Veerabhadra Panchangam: A Guide to Telugu Astrology and Festivals
A panchangam is a Hindu almanac that contains information about the lunar and solar cycles, planetary positions, auspicious and inauspicious timings, festivals, and other astrological details. Panchangams are used by Hindus for various purposes such as religious rituals, horoscopes, marriage matching, etc. Panchangams are usually published in regional languages and follow different calculations based on local traditions and customs.
One of the most popular panchangams in the Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is the Butte Veerabhadra Panchangam. This panchangam is authored by Sri Butte Veerabhadra Daivajna, a renowned astrologer and scholar who belongs to the lineage of Sri Butte Veerabhadra Siddhanti, a famous astrologer of the 19th century.
