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, Yasoda, as a punishment for His michievious childhood pastimes. Every evening at the Temple, everyone has an opportunity to show their love and devotion to the Lord by offering ghee lamps and singing before Him.
