Description

The Karthik Festival is a time to celebrate and worship Lord Krishna. Since the worship of Narayana goes with purity, sacrifice and austerity, many devotees undertake special austerities such as fasting during the month-long event.

On the last Saturday of the festival, a large oil lamp (kambam lamp) is lit and left burning from 12 hours, from 18:00 to 06:00 next morning while devotees express their devotion to Lord Krishna. The event includes the chanting of special hymns, multiple Pujas throughout the night to Lord Krishna, and continual singing and dancing around the oil lamp. Karthik month is a time when Lord Krishna makes Himself more available to His devotees more than any other time of year. Take this opportunity and praise Lord Krishna during Karthik Month, as He blesses all immensely during Karthik, even for the smallest of offerings.
