Nampih

  • fold up, overlap, put in layers atop one another. Since 1993, nampih, followed by the name of a lunar month (Sasih) has represented the intercalary month for the Balinese Saka calendar. An intercalary month is added every two or three years to the Saka Calendar to keep it in line with the Gregorian Calendar, with nampih months named for the month that precedes them. Only seven of the twelve months can have an intercalary Nampih Sasih added to them: Sasih Kaulu, Sasih Kedasa, Sasih Desta, Sasih Sada, Sasih Kasa, Sasih Karo, and Sasih Ketiga (8, 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3). Nampih cannot be used for Sasih Kapat through Kepitu (4 - 7) or for Sasih Kesanga (9). Prior to 1993, the intercalary month was called Mala, e.g. Mala Desta, Mala Sada
  • only one or the other of these two intercalary months was ever used.
