(1) In Vedic astrology, Panchang meaning “five attributes” of the day. They are:

Ending Moment (EM) of elongation of the Moon, the lunar day, the angular relationship between Sun and Moon ( Apparent Moon minus Apparent Sun). One Tithi equals 12 degree difference between Moon and Sun.

EM of asterism of the day, that is, the stellar mansion in which Moon is located for an observer at the center of the Earth. One Nakshatra equals 13 degrees : 20 minutes. There are 27 Nakshatra in 360 degrees.

EM of the angular relationship between Sun and Moon( Apparent Moon plus Apparent Sun). One Yoga equals 13 degrees:20 minutes. There are 27 Yogas in 360 degrees.

EM of half of a Tithi. One Karaṇaequals 6 degree difference between Moon and Sun.

weekday the seven weekdays. Monier gives “solar day” instead of Rasi as the fifth limb. Some people enumerate Var (days of the week) instead. Var or solar days do not involve intricate computations, unlike EM of Radi. However, in the Hindu system the five elements only constitute the five limbs of the Panchanga.

(2) An almanac that contains the astronomical / astrological daily details also came to be called a Panchanga because of the importance of five attributes.

(3) Panchang-pukan, which is a part of Ganesh-Ambika-pujan.
