Kartika Month – Damodar Program


Hare Krishna Dear All,

16th October marks the beginning of a very special and auspicious month of the year – Kartika month. The month of Kartik is also called Damodara month.

In this sacred month, puja, giving in charity, bathing in the Yamuna and all other religious activities are much greater than at other times of the year.

The month of Kartika is the best of all months, and it is in this month that many special festivals like Dhan-Teras, Diwali, Govardhan Puja, Bhai Duj, Tulsi Vivaah and various others take place.

Following are excerpts from some scriptures (Puranas) describing the glory of the pious Kartik month:
“If somebody performs even a little worship of Lord Shri Hari in this month, He offers that devotee His own abode.”
“If somebody burns a lamp in the temple of Lord Shri Hari even for a short time (in the month of Kartik), then whatever sins, he has acquired for millions of kalpas (one kalpa equals 1000 yugas) are all destroyed.”
“O Narada! I have personally seen that a person who happily reads the Bhagavad Gita in the month of Kartik does not return to the world of birth and death.”
“Of all gifts, the gift of a lamp during the month of Kartik is the best. No gift is its equal.”
“The pious result obtained by bathing in all holy places and giving all charities is not equal to one ten-millionth part of the result obtained by following the vow of Kartik.”

So to make this month extra special for you all are bringing to you at the convenience of your house a beautiful Damodara Program, in which you can participate in performing a worship of Lord Krishna together with your family and friends at your home.

This program is ISKCON Perth’s initiative to spread the mercy of Lord Krishna to as many households as possible. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity and hold a Damodara Program at your house, please give us a call as soon as possible on any of the numbers below or send an email to – krrish_khokhar44@yahoo.com

Sita Rama Laksman das – 0422 045 525
Hema Krishna das – 0411 018 849
Krsna chaitnya nitai das – 0416632619

A typical Damodara program lasts 30 minutes (unless someone wants extra Kirtan) and it includes a brief description of Kartik month and its glories, recitation of Damodarashtakam and offering of the lamps to Lord Damodara, singing the glories of Lord Hari.

We will bring everything that is needed for the program, the only arrangement you need to make from your end is to book a time with us!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and blissful Kartika month. May you all get great opportunities to make the most out this most auspicious month.

Your well wishers
