A set of tables devoted to the sun and the moon, titled the Candrārkī (“Related to the moon and sun”), was compiled in Sanskrit by Indian astronomer Dinakara along with a short accompanying text, intended to give guidance on how to construct a calendar (pañcāṅga) for any desired year and geographical circumstances. The epoch of this table-text is 9 April 1578. We present here an edition of the text, a literal translation, and detailed technical commentary. © The Author(s) 2018.
