In his address Pandit Omkarnath Shastri traced the History of Kashmiri Shaivism and the various similarities between Kashmir and the rest of the Country in the preparation of the Panchang. He said that Rituals of Kashmir contained in “Karmakand” emanated from the South of India and were adopted by the people of Kashmir subsequently.
