Pope Gregorius being addressed by the commission for calendar reform 1582-1583.

We Westerners are the pride of the solar Order. Ever since 45 B.C. when we fell in love with the princess of Egypt, we go for the solar year... and we even became more accurate in calculating the length of the solar year once we figured out how fractions worked. But alas, the New Roman Order lost its Julian division of the solar year in AD 321 when the last heathen Roman Emperor introduced the commercial linear 7-days weekorder to be balanced by the religion and thus half of the meaning of the solar order was factually lost... we came up from the Middle Ages with a cultural consciousness of contrasting unnatural weeks with natural dates. Now, cure from the darkness and find a renewed true nonmaterialistic natural consciousness of solar order.... Cakra!



Short History of the Solar Order

At present we have the so called Gregorian calendar that was fixed on the seasons in 1582 with a weekorder having a rhythm of its own. This contrasting of unnatural weeks with natural dates is what may be called the cultural consciousness of the solar order; a strategy of time-management agreed upon democratically: partly religious (science is not that sure), partly commercial.

In contrast with this cultivated time we have the old concepts of the Julian calendar (that was abandoned in two phases: first its public weekorder in AD 321 later its imprecise leaping in 1582.) and the unknown but recently discovered 'Cakra'-calendar of the original vedic order as described in the third Canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam (the bible of Krishna's life and times). These two old calendars are about the same: they transpose the lunar order of 48 phases on the solar year as measured by the seasons (the Tropical Year) making a year of 24 fifteen-day periods or fortnights with extra inserted (season-) days to keep the calendar aligned with the sun. The old Romans spoke of Ides, Kalends and Nones (to the phases of the moon) and the vedic culture speaks of panca dasa's, fifteen day periods that are 'dark' or 'light', also inspired by the moonphases. Together with the respect for the moon(calendar) itself this division of the solar year in contrast makes for what can be called a natural consciousness of solar order.

The same way as with the calendar one can also look at the clock: we have the consciousness derived from the relative of political standardtime with its zones, mean time and summertime schedules as set in the 20th century and we have the classical old timing to the absolute of the sun that dictated the timeconsiousness of our ancient societies and cultures of sundials and waterclocks for thousands of years.


Purpose of the Solar Order

The basic purpose of these pages on the solar order is to contrast the cultural relative, arbitrary and thus uncertain consciousness of standardtime with the natural absolute and irrefutable or certain of the consciousness of natural time in order to gain control over our modern time and its chaos of cultivation and conditioning, politics and psychology.


The Science

 Next two tables are discussed which serve the implementation of these ideas along the lines of astronomical observation.

1) The Equation of Time: this table is given to correct a reference clock to the position of the sun. This in order to be able to compare the normal clock with the classical concept of solar time, just like having a thermometer for inside and outside temperatures. With such a reference clock one can manage that part of ones life that can be run outside the normal conditioning of standardtime.

2) The Cakra Calendar. First a lists of advantages is given in using it and after that the actual division is offered that shows the way the old roman calendar before divided our solar year.

The two tables are together with the data of the Lunar Order combined into one calendar called the Full Calendar of Order.
