We are in the auspicious Chaturmasa parva kala and about to complete the Dhadhivratha. Thanks to Adhika Masa, we ended up observing Dadhi Vratha for two months. The Third month in the Chaturmasa is known as the Ksheera Vratha. This Vratha needs to be observed from Bhadrapada Shukla Ekadashi to Ashwayuja (Ashvija) Shukla Dashami.
