ISKCON Ludhiana celebrated the arrival of the auspicious Kartik month with ecstatic kirtan, a lamp offering to Lord Damodar, recitation of the Damodarastakam prayers and discourses. Nearly 300 devotees offered lights to Their Lordships after Gaura Aarti on the first day of the month of Kartik.

Temple president Rajasuya das announced the planned continuation of lamp offerings for the whole lunar month. He said that since this month is very dear to Krishna. by performing austerities or restraining one's sense gratification and performing activities to please the senses of the Lord, one becomes very dear to Krishna.

As Satya-yuga is the best of yugas, as the Vedas are the best of scriptures and as Ganga is the best of rivers, so Kartik is the best of months, the most dear to Krishna.
