In this calendar, solar-wise also called the cakra
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

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

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

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 moon,
how by night and day it looks down,
looking at the bodies of your slaughters!''

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

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
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
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.

*: 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.

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

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
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
it done for you by a program).
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.
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.

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

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.
