During the Sunday program in Dallas on October 4, Giriraj Swami spoke about the glories of the month of Kartika and the importance of devotee association. “In the month of Kartika (October-November); especially in Vrndavana, there is a specific program for temple worship of the Lord in His Damodara form. ‘Damodara’ refers to Krsna’s being bound with rope by His mother, Yasoda. It is said that just as Lord Damodara is very dear to His devotees, so the month known as Damodara, or Kartika, is also very dear to them.” (NOD 12)
