(6.2.21) Adhik Maas Legend

Adhik Maas Legend

According to Bhavishya Puran, it is said that once Mal Maas felt sad and went to Lord Vishnu and said, "O Lord, all the Tithis, Nakshtras, months etc have their own lords but I have not been assigned any God/Lord. No auspicious work is done during me. Everybody dishonours me. I am so much distressed that I want to die. I have come to you to have Your  shelter.
Lord Vishnu took pity on Mal Maas / Adhik Maas and said, " O, Mal maas, I understand your distress. I assign you my name, Henceforth you will be known as Purushottam Maas."
Lord Vishnu Further said that the good deeds, Jap,Tap and Charity etc. done during this month (Mal Maas) would certainly be very fruitful. Hearing it Mal Maas felt pleased and was satisfied. Since then this Adhik Maas or Adhi Maas or Mal Maas or Malimluch Maas is called and known as Purushottam Maas and has got more importance than any other Month. People read religious books, observe fast, give donations and do Jap -Tap, Havan etc.during Adhik Maas.
