Short description:

In this calendar, solar-wise also called the
cakra calendar, are combined the order of the sun, the moon and the stars that are needed to be, relative to the ether, in harmony with the lawfulness of the cyclic nature of time. The numbers indicate the degree to which a clock deviates from a sundial (see also equation). Positive values indicate the number of minutes and seconds a standard clock runs ahead of the sundial, negative ones the time it runs behind. For automatic recalculation to the time of the local sun see the tempometer. The days with a ©-sign in it (white and pink) are the 14th and 15th cakra days of the cakra calendar, with as the third one in a row a two-monthly extra leap-day, or a season holiday (with UE, BN etc.). Cakra old year's day is at December 21th. Dark red and pink are the days of the lunar phases that respectively do not overlap and do overlap with the cakra calendar. K(alends) means a new moon, N(ones) half a moon and I(des) a full moon. A lunar cycle is called a lunation, there is no lunar year. March was month one on the ancient roman fasti calendar. Three days after a lunar phase day, balancing to the field table, a B(usiness)-day follows and three days after a fifteenth or sixteenth cakra-dag a P(rivate)-day follows. A solar C(akra)-day (©), a holiday or day of going out, is each half month the seventh and the fourteenth cakra sunday. The fifteenth cakra day is a half monthly leap day, suitable for self study and fasting. The sixteenth season day of June coincides (midsummer) with the fifteenth day (fasting during the day, celebration in the evening). The days of the lunar phases (red/pink) of the cakra-order are meant for spiritual exercises as singing together, reading the scripture in association and meditation (S-days). Yellow/orange are the days of July the 6th en 7th when we are closest to the center of the Milky Way (see further the more extensive cakra calendar-discussion; under terms: fields and cakra-order; the dialogue nr 6 in the synopsis; and apart from the text below also the entire site for more in depth studies).

offers three discrete calendars in one:

And Jesus said to Thomas:

''Woe to you who dwell in error,
heedless that the light of the
sun which judges and looks down upon the all
will circle around all things so as to enslave the enemies.
You do not even notice the
how by night and day it looks down,
looking at the bodies of your slaughters!''

Nag hammadi, The book of Thomas the Contender

1) Solar Calendar

This is the christian reformed roman solar year in twelve months called the gregorian calendar fixed in 1582. It is shown in ocre/yellow for the numbers of the days of the gregorian reformed roman calendar and the abbreviations of the names of the months according julian, and later reform. The individual days in the cells show the numbers of the Equation of Time: A positive value means: the clock is ahead of the sundial so many minutes and seconds. For calculating solar time for your own place go to the time-equation-page or check the tempometer. Note that the christian civil political week order is not considered here since there is no scriptural or astronomical support for it as to how a year should be divided by it (in fact it doesn't divide the year but constitutes a cultural contrast; see the Order of the Sun-page). And concluding: Pantha Rhei!: this table has a shift in phase of one day per 25 years for the data of the equation of time (updated 1999 at this page)

2) Cakra-calendar (vedic/roman weekorder and 6 seasons to the solar year)

White: Cakra-weekends
Pink: days of cakra-weekends that overlap with the KNIN moonphase-calendar
Light Green: : beginning of the six seasons
UE: upward along the equinox (spring in the northern hemisphere)
BN: before the northern solstice (early summer in the northern hemisphere)
AN after the northern solstice (late summer in the northern hemisphere)
DE: downward the equinox (autumn in the northern hemisphere)
BS: before the southern solstice (early winter in the northern hemisphere)
AS : after the southern solstice (late winter in the northern hemisphere)
* : gregorian leapday in February : leaps 21 Dec. for the Cakra-calendar

The Cakra-solar year begins at the 22nd of December and counts following the gregorian count of dates 365.242 days

It is called vedic/roman because the Bhâgavata Purâna, the vedic scripture this cakra-division is derived from, does not mention 7-day roman weeks, only 15 day fortnights. The seven days division of christian custom is taken from the Holy Bible.

This calendar is called astronomical because it begins at the astronomically set date of the shortest day and is truly tropical of nature.

3) Fasti-calendar/ Lunar calendar

This is a revised version of the ancient lunar roman 'week' order (before the Julian reform) of holidays called fasti which means days of no commercial or legal business. It is indicated by the red fields (or pink by overlap) in the full calendar of Order. Black Roman Numbers refer to the original count of lunar months in an old unreformed lunar year that was to begin in March, and white letters in a red field, or black letters in a pink field in case of overlap, refer to the signal days K, N and I (roman holidays). Thus this calendar offers ±12.3 lunar month's in a solar year.

K: Kalends, the day of the new moon
N: Nones the day of the first and last quarter
I: Ides the day of full moon.

A.U.C.: Ab Urbe Condita means 'from the foundation of the city' 753 B.C., the date our presently gregorian called calendar, before all its reform, factually for the first time in history was implemented, was born so to say.

N.B.: One lunar month or lunation, a period of four consecutive lunar phases, is ± 29.5 days long.

See further the Order of the Moon - pages.

*: The revision of the ancient roman lunar calendar at this site means that it is rationalized: it has a solar year of 12 solar months which are named with their numbers , starting in March with I . For the signal days (holidays) a modern astronomical table is used (see above) setting them to the phases of the Moon. The Length of the lunar year is one complete cycle of four phases about the earth relative to the sun (29.5 days), thus making for a solar year that has 12.3 lunar cycles in it. Originally as said this calendar had no last quarter nones after Ides nor such an equal distribution in 'lunar weeks', and was it fixed lunisolar by a regular leap month every three years. Also it originally had names of goddesses and emperors and a year of only ten months -two months of uncertainty about when the solar year would end. In fact it has been trimmed of all its then relevant social meaning of celebration down to the sober concept of only having signal days to the lunar phases indicated with the names of Ides, Nones and Kalends that were used at the time.



To the use of this discrete calendar-system
the following advise:
It is wise to consider the divisions according their original purposes:

   1) The division of the months (the dating) and length of the year is derived from the gregorian reform of the julian calendar. Therefore the civil New Year is the normal traditional celebration of the first of January (provided corrective leaping). With the solar month one organizes one's holidays, birthday celebrations and festivities, but also rounds of fasting can be settled thus like going on a milkfast in the month of May e.g. or having a fast of solid food every fiteenth day of the cakra-week for health purposes and spiritual well-being.

   2) The division in weeks to the Cakra calendar is set to the vedic mission of Hindu culture in the West: to restore the social control and the respect for scriptural truth. Hence these days, marked with a ©-sign and black letters in a white/pink field, are meant for socializing publicly at the seventh and 14th day (media-arrest in the private sphere) with the fifteenth day (FD) of them for fasting and study (private) and the bimonthly season days (SD marked light green) for celebration (in free association). The P and B days are there to balance ones actions according the fields of action (see BPCS-table). With these cakra-days of the solar order it is vital to reset once a week, every cakra© -sunday e.g., a reference clock to the true (apparent) sun by means of the values of the equation of time given in the table (see also tempometer to have the math for it done for you by a program). The idea is that in order to 1) live with the natural force field of the ether and 2) be in control with a system set to ulterior motives like it is the system of standard time, one needs an other system, the cakra-division that is tuned to nature. Commanded by standard time only one will lack the motivation to relativize it, a relativizing which is something morally necesary.

    3) The revised lunar roman civil calendar ('fasti') is to be used for the purpose of setting holidays - or days of study and spiritual practices - and the legal days for work. It can, according classical roman law, be considered 'fas' to work on days that are not marked with black or white numbers in a red or pink field (even though one should remember to go out e.g. every cakra sunday, as well as fast and study for ones filognosy every fifteenth cakra day). The original roman order was much more complicated with another system of determining what civil actions would be legal on what days.

   4) The year count is in gregorian years A.D. for civil purposes (as long as the majority wants it) and in classical roman A.U.C.-years for the purposes of The Order of Time (apollonian loyalty to the historical authentic, that is roman, truth of the civil calendar).

   5) The political setting of the muslim friday, the jewish sabbath and christian saturday and sunday is, by this calendar, considered invalid to the actual purpose of civil order as there is no sufficient scientific support to the astronomical reality of them. The week one observes in nature is the lunar phase and thus are regular solar weeks derived from them to be leaped with the cakra kalendar in order to have them follow the liunar division. The religious approaches on the fridays, sundays and saturdays of our standard time weeks are considered reactive or compensatory to the bewilderment of civil time as settled by the julian reform of 45 B.C. and constantine reform of 43 A.D., and should as such be treated as subcultural and private (temporary religious/political/economic/pragmatical management-) options of order (just as is iot is with the indications of civil standard time on a regular clock). According the full Calendar of Order one may work on many gregorian saturdays and sundays or do whatever the cakra calendar combined with the lunar order would allow according to ones personal use, since one, to the "God" of time, has one's holy days on a regular cakra-basis settled already. The religious advantage is that with this full calendar any day can be a holy (- that is: pure to the actual sun and moon -) sunday of contemplation and study, and thus relativizing takes this order away the compulsory nature of ones linear standardtime fridays, sundays and sabbaths.

N.B. This concept of order may be used for political, religious or counseling purposes of proselytizing. But since each citizen may adopt and use this scheme to settle his own life to his own liking, must, eventually promoting it publicly, be guarded against doing any harm to the integrity of the order of filognosy; which implies e.g. not to impose it nor to be dogmatical with it. Freedom of choice and human rights must prevail in this. Also after achieving an acceptable democratic (international) majority that is willing to account for an - always risky - switch of the formal time-system, must this be observed.
