Kārtika is a month in autumn which is of special interest to all Vaiṣṇavas. It is a time of increased fortune in making offerings to the Lord and accumulating sukṛti in the form of pure, unalloyed love of Godhead. Scriptures such as the Padma Purāṇa and others describe Kārtika as a time when “one vrata carried through will be equal to one hundred times the merit of any other time, and all accumulated sins removed from the heart.” During this month, devotees sing night and day the Dāmodarāṣṭakaṁ prayers which describe Kṛṣṇa in His childhood pastimes with Mother Yaśodā in Vṛndāvana. Devotees offer ghee lamps while chanting in heart melting chorus. Everyone is invited to participate.
Please join us in the temple for the Śrī Dāmodarāṣṭakaṁ prayers on Monday to Saturday 7.30 am to 7.45 am and 8 pm to 8.30 pm. On Sundays at 10.00 am to 12.30 pm and 8 pm to 8.30 pm. Or, join us on iskconla.com/live if you are unable to be with us!
