How is Malmas calculated

Due to Malamas or Adhikamas, there has been a change in the dates of festivals in the year 2023. But first of all it is necessary to know how the malmas is calculated. Actually, on the basis of Panchang, there is an extra month in every third year, which is called Malmas.

A solar year is of 365 days and 6 hours and a lunar year is of 354 days. In such a situation, a lunar month is added every third year to equalize the difference between the solar year and the lunar year. This is called Malmas. Auspicious and auspicious works are prohibited during Malmas in Hinduism. Please tell that in the year 2023, Malmas is starting from 18 July 2023.
