Njattuvela (position of the Sun)
All-stars traverse through their circular paths daily. Planets also travel through the stars. This distant phenomenon cannot be witnessed with naked eyes. The transit of the Sun through the stars is called Njattuvela. Sun passes through 27 stars in 12 months. Therefore, a Njattuvela takes around 14 days. Similarly, the Moon’s presence in a star is called Naal. A sign contains 2¼ stars. When Sun transits through a star, it is called that star’s Njattuvela. There are 2 Njattuvelas in one month. The Njattuvelas are taken for the stars, which are included in the sign with the name of the current month.

The Panchangas list clearly the beginning and the end of Njattuvelas of every month. Like Sun and Moon, other planets to transit through stars. These are given as Grahapakarchas in the Panchanga.
