Purushottam Maas Katha in Hindi
Lord Vishnu is considered to be the lord of Adhikmas. Purushottam is a name of Lord Vishnu. That is why Adhika Maas is also called as Purushottam month. There is a very interesting story about this subject in the Puranas. Indian sages are said to have prescribed a deity for every lunar month by their method of calculation. Since Adhika Maas appeared to strike a balance between the Sun and the Moon months, no deity was prepared to be the ruler of this additional month. In such a situation, the sages urged Lord Vishnu to take the burden of this month on himself. Lord Vishnu accepted this request and thus it became Purushottama month along with Mal month.
There is also a symbolic meaning of calling Adhika month as Purushottama month. It is believed that this month is the time for every particular person to become pure with body and mind. During this, devotees engage in fasting, fasting, meditation, yoga and bhajan-kirtan-contemplation and dedicate themselves to God. In this way, this is the time to become better than an ordinary person, to wash away the filth of the mind. This is the reason why it has been named as Purushottam month.
For more months, a very beautiful story is heard in the Puranas. This story is related to the killing of the demon king Hiranyakashipu. According to the Puranas, the demon king Hiranyakashipu once pleased Brahma ji with his harsh penance and asked him for the boon of immortality. Since giving the boon of immortality is prohibited, so Brahma ji asked him to ask for any other boon. Then Hiranyakashipu asked for a boon that no male, female, animal, deity or demon of the world could kill him. He should not die in 12 months of the year. When he dies, it is neither day nor night. He died neither by any weapon nor by any weapon. He cannot be killed at home, nor can he be killed outside the house. On receiving this boon, Hiranyakashipu started considering himself as immortal and declared himself as God. When the time came, Lord Vishnu appeared in the form of Narasimha avatar i.e. half male and half lion in the month, in the evening, under the dehri, cut Hiranyakashipu’s chest with his nails and sent him to the door of death.
In this month, Mahamatya of Purushottam month in Shrimad Bhagwat Gita, reading of Shri Ram Katha, recitation of Vishnu Sahasranama Stotra and 14th chapter of Purushottama name of Gita should be recited daily with meaning. If all this cannot be done, then this Dwadashakshar mantra should be chanted 108 times daily.
Apart from chanting and penance, fasting is also important in this month. Food should be taken at one time for the whole month, which will be good from the point of view of spiritual and health. In food, wheat, rice, barley, moong, sesame, bathua, peas, amaranth, cucumber, banana, amla, milk, curd, ghee, mango, green, peepal, cumin, dry ginger, rock salt, tamarind, betel nut, jackfruit There is a law to eat mulberry, fenugreek etc.
