Adhik Month Maas from 17 June to 16 July, 2015

Adhik Month Maas from 17 June to 16 July, 2015

Adhik Maas (is normally termed as extra lunar month, in English) occurs in every third year when an additional month is added to the Lunar calendar. Besides Adhik Maas, this extra month is also termed as Mal Maas, Malimmacha or Purushottam Maas.

If we talk from the religious point of view, then Adhik Maas has its own significance. During this month, the process of fasting is undertaken by the devotees and garments are offered as charities. The legend says, that during this month in the ancient period of time, King Nahush took fast and was absolved from all the mortal bondages and was bestowed with the Throne of Indra (The Ruler of heaven).

It has been clearly mentioned in Devi Bhagavat, that all kinds of meritorious, noble and charitable acts along with fasting will have greater impact than the normal days and generate precious results for the devotee. Even a minor work of charity done unintentionally during this time, can produce remarkable results for the bearer.

Adhik Maas is also termed as Purushottam Maas because of the fact that the month enjoys a special boon from Lord Vishnu. According to Purana, when 12 different months of the year were assigned to 12 different Gods, Adhik Maas felt dejected as there was no God assigned to it. It immediately sought the refuge of Lord Vishnu and shared its problem with the supreme lord. Lord Vishnu, as benevolent in nature gave refuge to Adhik Maas and blessed the month with his personal name. From that day onwards, the Maas is also termed as Purushottam Maas. Lord Vishnu also gave boon to Adhik Maas that whoever conducts good deeds, Mantra Japa and Vrata during this month, will be bestowed with all the well beings and ambitions that could not be attained even with all the other 12 months in the combine. There is much of a compilation about this Maas in the book termed as Purushottam Grantha.  All the religious significance associated with this month is mentioned in this book.
