The month of Kartik in Sri Vrindavan Dham (Album with photos) The month of Kartik in Sri Vrindavan Dham has such a sublime atmosphere that yearly it attracts large number of pilgrims and devotees from around the world. This may also be due to the benefit of any spiritual activity performed in Vrindavan during Kartik is multiplied thousands of times. This special month is also known as the month of Damodar as it commemorates the pastime of how the Lord allowed Himself to be bound by the love of His mother. The favorite activity of devotees during Kartik at the Krishna Balaram Temple is joining the throngs of devotees singing the Damodarastakam in unison during evening darshan accompanied by the offering of a flame. The lights are dimmed, revealing a beautiful scene of the eager faces of the pilgrims illuminated by the golden glow of circling ghee lamps. The month also coincides with a number of festivals such as Diwali, Govardhan Puja, and the holy disappearance day of Srila Prabhupada. With the increased number of pilgrims, the chanting of the 24 hour kirtan crew reaches a fever pitch and takes the temple room to heights of ecstasy. Another highlight of Kartik is the parikramas. Every year, His Holiness Lokanath Swami leads the Braj Mandala Parikrama, a walking tour of the holy twelve forests of Vrindavan, taking place over the entire month of Kartik drawing over 1,500 devotees. Vrindavan fixture Deena Bandhu Prabhu also leads smaller parikramas that leave and return daily from the temple to Vrindavan area holy sites. Kartik is also marked in Vrindavan by its magnificent feasts. Daily prasadam is generally sponsored for all devotees, and on Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance day a feast is served to almost 10,000. For many, Kartik is a time to catch up with old friends. “And all those devotees are one of the best reasons to visit Vrindavan for Kartik,” says Deena Bandhu. “It’ll take forever to get from one place to another, because every few steps, you’ll met an old friend you haven’t seen for so long.

In the Bhagavad-gita 10.35, Krsna says that of all the months, “I am marga-sirsa,” which is a name for the November-December period. It is said that before Krsna, first comes Radha – Radha-Krsna,Radha-Syam, Sita-Ram, like that. First the consort of the Lord is mentioned. Therefore the month of Kartik, which comes before this month of marga-sirsa, is a month of Radharani.

The question many ask is, what is so special about Kartik month that the Vedic scriptures, which do not exaggerate at all, praise it so lavishly? Why rewards offered during this month are so great, to the extent of being unbelievable?

Kartik is the time to tighten up the loose screws, of all the loose ends, and to bring it back to the real standard. Kartik, is our chance!

I thought my main objective in this month would be meditation, to increase my remembrance of Krsna and to increase my service, both in quantity a

Kartik is a very special month when the mercy of the Lord is easily available for all of His devotees. My spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada told us that even ‘unserious persons’ who execute devotional service during this month are easily awarded the Lord’s personal service. To follow the kartik vrata (vows) can be as simple as offering a light to Lord Damodara each morning or evening, or both. Of course, for devotees who already have a daily spiritual practice (sadhana) kartik is a time when t
