What is Tithi?
In Vedic astrology, Tithi or Thithi is referred to as a full lunar day or the time taken for the longitudinal angle between the Sun and the Moon to increase by 12°. In other words, Tithi is a time taken by the moon in order to increase its distance from the Sun by 12 degrees.
Significance of Tithi in Hindu Panchang
Tithi plays a significant role in Hindu Calendar or Hindu Panchang. It is one of the important elements other than Nakshatra, Yoga, Karan and Vaar that are considered to determine Today’s Shubh muhurat. Today’s Tithi or aaj ki Tithi comprises both auspicious and inauspicious muhurats of that day.
As per Vedic astrology, Tithi is referred to as the duration taken by the moon in increasing its distance from the Sun by 12 degrees. The Tithi of Today begins at varying times of the day. Its length varies for each day and the duration of Tithi is believed to lie anywhere between 19 to 26 hours approximately.
Since the moon takes 29.5 days to complete the 360 degree revolution, Hindu Panchang considers 30 tithis in a lunar month. These 30 Tithis are divided between Shukla Paksha (waxing phase) and Krishna Paksha (waning phase) where each Paksha occupies 15 Tithis. Except Poornima and Amavasya, each Tithi occurs twice in a month. All the Hindu festivals and rituals are observed according to the Hindu Tithi.
