Damodara Month (Lamp Festival) INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS Founder acharya: His Divine Grace A.C.Bhakthivedanta swami prabhupada Worship Lord Damodara (Krishna) in your home         ISKCON Puducherry is celebrating Damodara month from 13th Oct 2011 to 11th Nov 2011. As a part of this monthly celebration we are conducting Damodara home programs. This program is aimed at giving opportunity to all of you to worship Lord Damodara (Krishna) in your home.                  During this month a group of devotees will be visiting homes in your area (anywhere in puducherry) and conduct kirtan (bhajan) for 30 minutes. During the kirtan time everyone will be given opportunity to offer lamps to Lord Damodara.           We will bring a picture of Lord Damodara and lamps as well. All we need is a small space in your home to conduct the program on any day of your choice. You also have the complete freedom to decide and invite as many people as you want. You can take this opportunity to invite your friends and relatives so that they too can benefit from offering lamps to Lord Damodara. Also this is a nice and easy way to introduce our vedic culture to your family and kids. For your benefit we are conducting this program absolutely FREE OF COST!!!              Please contact us in the below mentioned address if you wish to conduct Damodara program in your home. Make sure that you mention on what date you want to have the program in your home. This home program will last a maximum of 30 minutes only, so it can be conducted on any day from Oct 13 to Nov 11. Ever since launching this programme we have been getting an overwhelming response. So to avoid any last minute disappointments book your spot As Soon As Possible!           Of all the 12 months in a year Damodara month is the most auspicious and offering lamps during this month pleases Krsna the most. Kartika mahatmya from 16th chapter Hari Bhakti Vilasa says that "By offering a lamp during the month of Karttika one attains a pious result ten million times greater than the result obtained by bathing at Kurukshetra during a solar a eclipse or by bathing in the river Narmada during a lunar eclipse” (Text 101). Check out the Glories of Kartika month given below.           Please feel free to share this info with your friends and relatives as well. Everyone deserves the mercy of Lord Damodara and we are happy to conduct home programs in any corner of Puducherry!!!
