In Hinduism

Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)

Mānyā (मान्या) or Mānyatithi is the name of the eleventh of fifteen tithis (cycle of time) according to the Śārdūlakarṇāvadāna while the Gārgīyajyotiṣa considers Ānandā as the eleventh. The associated deity for Mānyā or Ānandā according to the Bṛhatsaṃhitā is Īśa. A tithi was defined as one thirtieth of a synodic month (c. 29.5 days), resulting in an average tithi being slightly less than a day.

Accordingly, “(31) The eleventh tithi is said to be Sunandā. One should make firm acts, kitchen, houses, towns, villages, sacrifices and assembly halls for Brahmins. (32) One should choose the best among women and servants. One should not hide money. Śiva (enemy of Kāma) is the deity”.
