Utilize the Adhik Maas to understand its significance

The Adhik Maas is one of the most important months in the lunar calendar. Although its origin and the incorporation of it along with the other 12 months in the calendar is a very controversial topic; still, it still has a very pronounced and prominent significance of its own. According to the two basic calendar systems of the Hindus, which are the solar calendar and the lunar calendar, there is a gap of 11 days between them as the solar year is made up of 365 days and the lunar year is made up of 354 days. To bridge this gap, after every three years, an extra month is added to the lunar calendar with the name of the Adhik Maas.

There are many stories behind the naming of this month as the Mal Maas and Purushottam Maas and many more. However, the most prominent one is that the other months refused to consider this month as a legitimate one and dubbed it as an abominable one like the stool and hence called it the Mal Maas. But it was later raised to the class higher than that of the other months when Lord Krishna or Purushottam assigned Himself to this month. It is believed that worshipping and performing religious duties in this month with a pious and devoted mind will bring positive results.

Importance of the Adhik Maas:

Every individual human being has a spiritual entity that comprises 5 Bhootas such as the air, water, earth, fire, and ether. These are manifested in the forms of the intellect-Buddhi, mind-manas, ego-aham and the soul divine or atman. It requires a specific time and a thorough worshipping procedure to undergo the uniting of one’s physical entity with that of the spiritual entity. And the Purushottam Maas is the right time. The importance of Adhik Month Maas lies in the fact that this is the time when one gets the chance to travel to the realm of self-revaluation, self-development, self-reflection, self-assessment, self-retrospection and introspection.

Observing the rituals of this month thoroughly will enable a person to gain peace of mind. This peace is not associated with of the satisfaction of hard work or fruitful results but with the ability to recognise calmness and serenity amidst the noise. Recuperation of the past pains and agonies and overcoming them in terms of mental and spiritual satisfaction that life will bestow its blessings on us is what the month is believed to bless us with.
