30 Tithis

Tithis are the lunar days in the Hindu calendar, which are based on the phases of the moon. Each tithi is the time it takes for the moon to move 12 degrees away from the sun. There are 30 tithis in a lunar month, 15 in each half (Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha). Tithis have different meanings and effects on human life, depending on their nature and characteristics.
