Adhik masa is an extra month in the Hindu lunar calendar that comes every three years is inserted to keep the lunar and solar calendars aligned. It is also known as Purshottam Masa. The results of any Vrat/Pooja done this month and worshipping Lord Vishnu nullifies ones sins. Adhik masa is also considered dear to our supreme Lord Shree Krishna, who has blessed this month to be as good as him.

Why is it called Adhik Masa/Purshottama Masa?

There were 12 lunar months and each month was assigned to one God. Rishi munis calculated and facilitated purshottam Mahina to balance solar and lunar years. Since it is Maal (unclean) Masa, therefore no Lord agreed to become the deity of this month. Lord Vishnu was then approached, Lord Vishnu took pity and assigned the Maal Mass to himself. Since Lord Vishnu is the Lord of the month it is called purshottam masa.

Devotees awake early in the morning during Adhik masa (purshottam) and worship Radha-Krishna or Lakshmi Narayan and Vrat / Pooja is performed during this month.

Ganesh Chaturthi is the festival of the birth of Lord Shree Ganesha (the god of prosperity and wisdom). Lord Ganesh is also considered โ€˜Vigna Hartaโ€™. The One who removes obstacles in devotees lives.

Ganesha is the younger son of Lord Shiva and Parvati. According to the story of Ganeshโ€™s birth it was said that Goddess Parvati created Ganesha out of dirt on her body while having a bath and set him to guard her body while she finishes having a bath. Shiva who has gone out returned at that time, but as Ganesha didnโ€™t know of him, stopped him from entering. An angry Shiva severed the head of Ganesh after a combat between the two. Paravati was enraged and Shiva promised Ganesh will live again. The devas went in search of a head facing north of a dead person could only manage the head of an elephant. Shiva fixed the elephants head on the child and brought him back to life.

Let us bow down to Ganesh in order to receive his blessings. By receiving his grace we pray for him to remove any potential obstacles in our lives and enables our endeavours to succeed.

Janmastmi is a special celebration of the birth of Lord Krishna also known as Gokulashtmi. Shree Krishna is considered the avatar of Vishnu who was born to Devaki and Vasudeva. As the story goes on he had to be taken to Nanda and Yashoda who raised him due to a threat to his life. Krishna was born during midnight hence Janmastmi is celebrated over the two days and is usually observed by fasting.

As Krishna was known as the makanchor (the one who steels butter). Devotees celebrate this by hanging pots of butter from tall poles in the street. This is an imitation of Shree Krishnaโ€™s childhood as when he used to play with cowherd boys, they stole curd hung out of reach by their mothers.

Procedures for Janmastmi Vrat Pooja

– Devotees who observe fast on Janmastmi usually fast for whole day as sankalapa to Lord Krishna and breakfast next day. Some devotees observe Ekadashi rules with no grains until next day. We will be meditating on Lord Krishna with the following chants: We would like this offering to be an offering by the atma ram within us and merge into Krishna consciousness and to seek lord Krishnaโ€™s blessings on this special day of Janmastmi.

Shravan Mass is one of the most holiest and auspicious months in the year and is dedicated to Lord Shiva and every day of the Shravan month has special significance. A lot of devotees observe fast during the month of shravan, by praying and worshiping to Lord Shiva during this time.

Shravan Mondayโ€™s are highly auspicious during shravan month as Lord Shiva loves Mondayโ€™s and always loves to be worshipped especially on Shravan Somvar.

Shravan month is auspicious to Shiv ji due to the fact that the churning of the ocean samudra manthan took place in the month of Shravan, fourteen different types of rubies came out. Thirteen were distributed amongst the asuras (demons) and devas (divine beings) except halahala (poison). It was Lord Shiva who drank the halahala and stored it in his throat. Since then Neelkantha (meaning blue throat) is attributed to Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva wore the crescent on his head to negate the effects of the poison. It is also believed that all the gods offered water to from the holy river Ganga to cool Lord Shiva and alleviate the effects of the poison.

Please join our shravan month group where we will be offering prayers to our Dear Lord Shiv ji and Mata Parvathi. Letโ€™s together worship Lord Shiva with dedication and a pious heart to ward off difficulties in our and families lifeโ€™s and ward off any obstacles. Lord Shiva (bholenath) is very dear to us all and he is easily appeased with the simplest of prayers.
