    Hi friends,

    When we live in US, what time should we follow to celebrate a festival that we used to do in India? Should we perform the pooja during the Indian time and date or with the Eastern Daylight Time?

    For now, we have Krishna janmashtami coming near. Will we have to make poojas at the time as in India or?

    Anyone who knows about this, please do clarify me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Vibula

    We need to follow the time zone where we live.
    You can check for the EST panchangam in the Temples closer to your place.

    Hi sowjanyanaadula,

    Thank you for the help. I will look into it. And also, we used to see the time to start something good right? How do we do that in US? Is that also through panchangam?

    Hi Vibula,
    Yes you will get that information too in mypanchang. All you have to do is select country,state and city and then it will show you calendar for the entire year. If you are having android mobile then you can download the app too :)Are you telugu?

    Hi Sowjanyanaadula,

    I have downloaded the app. It is too good. Thank you. But, can you let me know, what are those terms. I dont get them. Shaka, ayana etc... Which among those terms in the app is for good time? Is it amritkalam?
