Adopt a Cow
The Holiest Month of the Year
The month of Kartik brings hope and rejuvenation for spiritual seekers and practitioners. Lord Krishna is exceedingly generous during this time and gives His blessings and grace a thousand times more. His pastime of breaking the butter pots and being caught and bound by His mother is worshiped during Kartik.
“One who offers a ghee lamp to Lord Hari during the month of Kartik enjoys pastimes in Lord Hari’s splendid spiritual world. When one offers a lamp during the month of Kartik, his sins in many thousands and millions of births perish instantly.”
