The month of Damodara or Kartik (October/November) is an auspicious month within which Deepavali falls. Without fail, Deepavali is celebrated with
the lighting of lamps in every home and this year shall be no exception.
On behalf of ISKCON, we are pleased to invite you to be a part of this celebration.
“As Satya Yuga is the best of Yugas, As the Vedas are the best of scriptures, as the Ganges is the best of rivers, so Kartik is the best of months and
the most dear to lord Sri Krsna”.
Here in ISKCON Perth we are organizing a very special program of offering lamps to Sri Damodara ( the baby form of Lord Sri Krishna) while singing a
very special song . In this program the devotees can visit your home and organize to offer a lamp with you and your family and friends. This can
bring a lot of auspiciousness and good luck to the whole family who takes part.
The Kartik ( Damodara) month starts from Saturday 19 October till Sunday 17 November.
The devotees can bring all the paraphernalia and arrange for all the necessary items. This is absolutely FREE ( Donations are accepted)

Benefits of offering a lamp in Kartik month
In the Skanda Purana, it says that a person who offers a ghee lamp to Lord Damodara or Lord Krsna during Kartik ,burns away a collection of sins as
big as Mount Meru or Mount Mandara and will not have take birth again in this world and and attains the eternal spiritual world where there is no suffering.
Even if there are no mantras, no purity,no pious deeds, everything becomes perfect.
“O Narada, no sins exist anywhere in the three worlds that will not be purified by offering a ghee lampto lord Kesava during Kartik “.
