Kartik 2020

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020

Submit your Prayer

The auspicious month of Kartik begins – on the 31st of October. During this month, we honour Krishna’s extraordinary loving exchanges with His pure devotees. One such devotee, Yasodamata, forgets that Krishna is God and relates to Him as His mother. When Krishna steals butter and yoghurt, Yasodamata chases and then binds Him. This supremely charming pastime has been remembered, sung about, and honoured through the ages.

Any spiritual activity we do during Kartik is magnified, so it’s an ideal time for us to immerse ourselves in Krishna consciousness. By observing spiritual vows during Kartik we can get the shelter of Srimati Radhika, the Queen of Vrndavan. So we’re all encouraged to increase our chanting of Krishna’s holy names, reading Srila Prabhupada’s books, associating with Krishna’s devotees, and worshipping His all-attractive form of Sri Damodar.

Due to the national lockdown from the 5th of November there will be no offering of candles at the temple. You are all encouraged to carry on offering lamps at home daily for the duration of Kartik.

The temple will still be open for individual prayer please book your visit to take advantage of this special opportunity, and feel your hearts solaced and spiritually nourished by this simple act of devotion.
