Bhadra or Bhadrapada or Bhaado or Bhadraba (Hindi: भादों bhaado, Sanskrit: भाद्रपद bhaadrapada, Nepali: भाद्र Bhadra , Odia: ଭାଦ୍ରବ Bhadraba) is a month of the Hindu calendar that corresponds to August/September in the Gregorian calendar. In India's national civil calendar (Shaka calendar), Bhadra is the sixth month of the year, beginning on 17 August and ending on 16 September. In Vedic Jyotish, Bhadra begins with the Sun's entry into Leo, and is usually the month of the year. In Nepal's Bikram Sambat, Bhadra is the fifth month.
In lunar religious calendars, Bhadra begins on the new moon in August/September and is the sixth month of the year. The festival of Ganesha Chaturthi, celebrating the birthday of Ganesha, is observed from the 4-10 Bhadrapada in the bright fortnight and is the main holiday of the year in Maharashtra. Per Shaka calendar, the dark fortnight of Bhadrapada is reserved for the veneration of the dead. This period is known as Pitru Paksha.
In the Vaishnava calendar, Hrishikesh governs this month.
The Goddess Radha was born on the eighth day of this month. Vaishnavas and some Shivites fast during the whole month of "Purattasi" in Tamil Nadu and visit Vaishnav temples on Saturday.
