Adhik Ashad Month 2015

Adhik Ashad Month 2015 begins on June 3, Adhik Ashad Krishna Pratipada & ends on July 2, Adhik Ashad Purnima as per North Indian Hindi calendar.

A lunar year has 354 days while a solar year has 365 days.  This means, at the rate of 11 days a year, in the course of 2 years 8 months, the difference is 29 and a half days equal to a lunar month. Therefore every 33rd month is considered an ‘Adhika Masa.

In practice, the speeds of the Sun and Moon can cause the Adhika Masa to be between the 28th and 36th months.

‘Adhika Masa (also called ‘Mala masa and ‘Purshotthama masa) is not followed in Assam, Bengal, Kerala, Orissa and Tamil Nadu since they follow the 365 day calendar.
