August, the eighth month of the English calendar, has started from today. Mangala Gauri Vrat and Sawan Adhik Maas Purnima are on the very first day of August. The month of August has started auspiciously. This whole month will be of Sawan because Shravan is of 59 days due to Adhik Maas. On August 31, there is a bath and donation of Shravan Purnima. In such a way, in the month of August too, Lord Shiva's blessings will be showered on you. Big fasts and festivals like Rakshabandhan, Hariyali Teej, Nag Panchami, Gayatri Jayanti, Kalki Jayanti, and Putrada Ekadashi will come in the month of August. Apart from these, the fasts of Chaturthi, Pradosh, Shivratri, Amavasya, and Purnima will also come.
