Aharmana In Hindu Astrology – Calculation Of Day Time in Hinduism

Aharmana is the duration of a day in Hindu astrology. The duration of a day is the difference of time between sunrise and sunset. Ratrimana is the duration of night in 24 hours minus dinamana. Dinamana given in panchangas (almanacs) relates to the true sunrise and sunset and apparent sunrise and sunset. True sunrise means the sun touching the horizon and apparent sunrise or sunset means the visibility of the Sun due to refraction so that the sunrise appears earlier and sunset appears slightly later. The celestial longitude of the Sun, as given in ephemeris, pertains to the center of the sun’s disc while the sunrise and sunset are taken from the upper limb of the Sun. Thus, the true and apparent dinamana differs by four or five minutes at the Tropic of Cancer of nearby. Thus, sunrise and sunset decide dinamana, and as sunrise and sunset depend on geographical latitude of the place and the sun’s declination on the date of observation. The sun’s declination is zero on March

Lingaparamarsha – Term in Hindu Logic – Linga Paramarsha

Lingaparamarsha is a conceptual term in Hindu logic or tarka. Linga Paramarsha – linga means sign and paramarsha denotes consideration of the sing as valid reason for inference. The term denotes consideration of the sign as a valid reason for inference. Lingaparamarsha is a part of the doctrine of inference in Nyaya Vaisesika. According to some logicians, the name anumana or inference is properly applicable to the linga paramarsha alone, because “consideration of the sign” is alone the cause of both judgment for one’s own sake and that for another’s. Paramarsha has been said to be a combination of two distinct notions, those of hetu or linga (sign) and vyapti (invariable concomitance) as Viseshya and Vishesana or subject and attribute.
