Sawan 2023: What is Malmas?

Jyotishacharya of Baidyanathdham Pandit Nand Kishore Mudgal told that according to Panchang, Malmas falls once in three years. It is also called Adhik Maas or Purushottam Maas. On the other hand, the lunar month in which there is no Sankranti of the Sun, that month is called Malmas. Auspicious work is prohibited for the whole 1 month due to Malmas. Malmas is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Worshiping Lord Vishnu during this period gives auspicious results.

Sawan 2023: This yoga was established after 19 years.

Jyotishacharya from Baidyanath Dham tells us that this Malmas lay in the moon Sawan 19 years ago. So Sawan had 2 months in 2004. Then in 2023, Malmas appeared in Sawan.

Malmas will start on July 18 and end on August 16.


Why is there a ban on auspicious work in Malamas? Know the reason for marriage and not being tonsured.

In many places people also call Adhik Maas as Malmas or Purnima month. During this period, no auspicious functions like marriage, Upanayana Sanskar, Mundan and new clothes and specialties are done.

That’s why good things happen elsewhere

According to astrology, the process of transit of the Sun from one zodiac sign to another is called Sankranti. Let us tell you that Sun God changes his zodiac sign almost every month but it happens in Malmas in which the Sun’s zodiac sign does not change. For this reason it is called Malin month or Malmas. During this period, no auspicious functions like marriage, Upanayana Sanskar, Mundan and new clothes and specialties are done.


Don’t do this even by mistake

Marriage is prohibited during Adhik Maas. No auspicious consecration takes place during this period. If you are getting married during this period without any auspicious celebration, then your married life will be full of discord. Apart from this, purchasing new clothes and new jewelry should also be avoided during this period. On the other hand, one should avoid building a new house, entering into a house or starting a new business this month.
