Tonight we will hearing more about the Holy Month of Kartik and 'Bahulastami' another sacred day within this special month, with a talk and slide show.
Kartik also known as the month of Damodara, is a month for deepening one's love for Krishna. It is considered by devotees of Krishna to be the holiest month of the year.
During this month, devotees make extra vows, perform extra spiritual activities, and generally worship Krishna in His form as a young boy, Damodara, who was once bound at the waist by His mother, Yashoda, as a punishment for His mischievous childhood pastimes.
Such special activities include, offering lamps, which we will be do this evening, accompanied by the singing of the special bhajan 'Damodarastakam". Lyrics are HERE .
