13 October 2019 | Sri Krsna Saradiya Rasayatra - Sharad Purnima
 
The first full moon of the autumn season marks the celebration of Krsna's dancing with the gopis.
 
On this day the deities of Vrndavana are nicely decorated in white. Krsna lila dramas are enacted. Because the moon is very auspicious, the vraja vasis leave pots of sweet rice exposed to the full moon for the whole night, to turn the sweet rice into ambrosial amrta.
 
 

13 October 2019 | Laksmi Puja
 
Laksmi Puja means worship of Laksmi Devi, the consort of Lord Visnu. Goddess Laxmi is said to have emerged from the ocean of milk at Diwali. On that day, Laxmi puja was performed to honour Her and as such, every year at Diwali, She is worshipped and offered prayers (not observed by Gaudiya Vaisnavas).

13 October to 12 November 2019 | Kartik Month

Performing vrata in the month of Kartika (Damodara) is glorified profusely in the puranas. Since this month is very dear to Krsna, by performing austerities, or restraining ones sense gratification and performing activities to please the senses of the Lord, one becomes very dear to the Krsna. As Satya yuga is the best of yugas, as the vedas are the best of scriptures, as ganga is the best of rivers, so kartika is the best of months, the most dear to Krsna.

Caturmasya

14 Oct to 12 Nov 2019 | Fourth Month of Caturmasya Begins:

Fourth month: Fasting from Urad Dal.

Caturmasya stands for ‘four months’. It is the period between sayana and uttana ekadasis. The scriptures refer to this period as the duration of Lord Visnu’s sleep in this universe.

The main goal of observing Caturmasya is to decrease attachment to material things and to increase devotion to Krishna.

Our source of inspiration

"Now we have got so many students and so many temples but I am fearful that if we expand too much in this way that we shall become weakened and gradually the whole thing will become lost. Just like milk. We may thin it more and more with water for cheating the customer, but in the end it will cease to be any longer milk. Better to boil the milk now very vigorously and make it thick and sweet, that is the best process. So let us concentrate on training our devotees very thoroughly in the knowledge of Krishna Consciousness from our books, from tapes, and in so many ways instruct them in the right propositions." - letter June 22, 1972 by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, founder acharya of International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON)
