The wonderful and enchanting history of the month of Purushottama is a long one that takes the personified Adhik Maas to the highest spiritual realm of Goloka Vrindaban, where she is blessed by Lord Krishna to have 1000 times more benefits to the observer of devotional vows than the month of Damodar.
Purushottama Maas comes every three years and is an extra month in the Vedic calendar that is inserted to keep the lunar and solar calendars aligned. It is during this time that devotional practices and vows are highly beneficial.
Lord Sri Krishna said (Padma Purana):
“All human beings should perform some devotional service in this Purushottama month by:
- Worshipping Me, Sri Krishna, by chanting My holy name
- Study of Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad-gita, particularly Chapter 15, Purushottama Yoga
- Giving in charity
- Offering ghee diya (lamp) daily
We encourage all devotees to consider using this auspicious time from July 18 – August 18 to make a donation towards the Give To Nrsimha 2023 Fundraiser to help complete Prahlad-Nrsimhadeva’s new home in the TOVP, the largest Nrsimhadeva temple in the world.
