The Hindu Leap Year
The Hindu leap year has an extra month and occurs once every 3 years or 4 times in 11 years.
The Hindu leap year includes an extra month, often referred to as “Adhik Maas” or “Purushottam Maas”. It typically occurs once every three years or four times in 11 years.
Therefore, the yearly lag of a lunar year is adjusted every three years. This adjustment allows for Hindu festivals to take place within a given time span rather than on a set day.
