OCTOBER 6 TO NOVEMBER 4
Kartik (Damodar) is the best, the purest of purifiers, and most glorious of all months. Kartik month is particularly dear to Lord Sri Krishna. This month is full of bhakta vatsalya. Any vrata, even the smallest, will yield huge results. The effect of performing a Kartik Vrata lasts for one hundred lifetimes, Kartik or the festival of offering lamps to Lord Krishna, glorifies Lord Krishna’s pastime of being bound with ropes by Mother Yashoda.
At Dhrti Yoga Center, both morning and evening, we would offer ghee lamps to Krishna and sing the Damodarastakam, meditating on meaning.
Every session would have one mala of the maha mantra chant with hari nama kirtana.
9:30 am sadhakas would recite and read Gajendra Moksha Lila-stava from 8th canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, which teaches complete surrender/dependence of Supreme Lord.
Evening sadhakas would recite from Srimad Bhagavad Gita chapter 7 and 15 respectively with meaning.
