  • I am not an expert. This is borrowed from some other sites.

  • If you are doing sankalpam for a puja/homa you can take few akshatas(turmeric rice) in your right hand while doing the sankalpa mudra on your right thigh.In this way you can avoid stating your exact location in the sankalpa and still be correct with it.Using akshtas is kind of a shortcut/substitute but it works nonetheless.

  • You have to change the nakshatra, thithi, karana and yoga which must be as be as per sunrise at your location and this will anyway point to your location. Unfortunately there is no tool which can give this info for any location on earth. You will have to do your own math if a panchang is not available for your area. Sankalpam is an important statement and it may be worth the while to get it right. Just think how anyone will reach you if they don't know where you are.

  • Yes, jambu dweepe, bharata varshe, dandakaranye, godavaryah dakshine teere, etc. denote the location.
