ENJOY THE RASA WITH KRISHNA

Kartik Night celebrates the Rasa-lila that Krishna enacted with His beloved gopis. The Rasa-lilais symbolic of the supreme Love relationship between a bhakta and the Lord. On Kartik Night, we celebrate Krishna as the centre point of our lives and express our love and devotion to Him in the form of a kambam lamp: a large oil lamp made up of smaller individual lamps representing the bhaktas.

‘During Kartik month, many devotees light a lamp for the Lord. All these lights symbolise your dedication to the Lord, your surrender to Him, and asking Him to always bestow His blessing and Grace upon you.’ – Paramahamsa Vishwananda

DID YOU  KNOW?

Kartik month is a time when Lord Krishna makes Himself more available to His devotees than at any other time of the year. During this time, whatever you do in remembrance of Krishna will bear merits a hundred times more than usual, even for the smallest of offerings.
As He blesses all immensely during Kartik, it is considered most auspicious to stay awake all night to praising Him and dancing the Raas with Him. Many devotees also undertake special austerities such as fasting during the month-long event.

Gita

WHAT  TO EXPECT

We venerate Krishna with several pujas, sing Sri Sri Radha Krishna bhajans, and take turns singing and dancing around the oil lamp the whole night through. The celebration begins with puja and the lighting of the kambam lamp which is kept burning from 18:00 until 06:00 the next morning. After the lamp has been extinguished, the rice from the colourful Rangoli designs surrounding the lamp is gathered up and given out as prasad.

GIVE FROM YOUR HEART

When we offer our love to the Divine, the Divine showers us with blessings. Giving from the heart is a true blessing in and of itself. Giving without expecting anything in return multiplies the blessings even more, especially when you selflessly sponsor an event.
Your donation helps to support the entire event. Everyone who makes a contribution benefits from the prayers that are done, even if you are unable to attend!
Thank you so much for your generous support!

CANCELLATIONS

If you are unable to attend, please be respectful and cancel your event to make space for others to attend.
