By Swami Harshananda

pañcāñgaśuddhi (‘holy period according to the pañcāṅga or almanac’)

Any auspicious rite should be performed when all the five aspects dealt with in a pañcāṅga (Hindu almanac) are deemed as auspicious. This is pañcāṅga-śuddhi.

These five aspects have been dealt with in detail in PAñCĀNGA.
