Mala

  • prefix of intercalary month of the Saka (lunar) calendar in a system that was abandoned in 1993. Before that date intercalary months, added every two or three years, followed either Sasih Desta or Sasih Sada, the ll or 12 lunar months, and were termed Sasih Mala Desta or Sasih Mala Sada. Starting in 1993 intercalary months use the prefix Nampih, and can be any one of seven months: Sasih Kaulu, Kedasa, Desta, Sada, Kasa, Karo, or Ketiga. The remaining five months: Sasih Kesanga, Kapat, Kalima, Kenem, and Kepitu cannot have a Nampih month added to them. -
