Dear Sri S.Jayanarayanan
The panchangam usually provides the duration of the nakshathram during the 
day.If theduration is morethan 50% that day can be taken as the day of the 
particular star.Our days begin with Suryodhayam to Surya asthamanam.One 
rider to this: In polar regions it may be difficult to go by this

Subject: [Advaita-l] Nakshatra Birthday


I need some help in determining a person's Nakshatra Birthday using a 
Panchangam. For example, let us take a hypothetical case of a person who has 
Visakha Nakshatra and whose "solar" (or Western) birthday falls on July 3. 
What date does this person's Star Birthday fall on this year?

I typically use the "Himalayan Academy" Panchangam that is available at 
http://www.himalayanacademy.com/resources/panchangam/ for a specific 
location. Since they provide full PDF files for cities throughout the globe, 
they are very useful. Suppose we are discussing the location of California 

According to this Panchangam, there are two days on which the Visakha 
Nakshatra falls on this year: June 29 & 30, details given below for San 
Jose, California. So is the Nakshatra Birthday 29th or 30th?
