Srimad Ubhaya Vedantha Acharya Peetam, JIVA ashramam invited Panchangam Designers representing all Vedic walks such as Priests, Panchangam Designers and Scholars to discuss the common questions that people and media have these days about how, when, and why a festival is celebrated. Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji advised the entire team to work together in order to share literature with the right reasons to give answers for all such common questions. Vedic sampradayam has its seeds laid from the beginning of existence. A rich culture and tradition that we can all be proud of. This meeting is very monumental and historic because it has brought together all the followers of Vedic philosophy irrespective of the lineage they come from. The agenda of the meeting included several short term goals while the long term goal remains to achieve a comprehensive structure and authentic description to our calendars. This was a 2 full day effort to begin with and will be a series of meetings for arriving at the goal.
