Description

The Kartik 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. Kartik 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 Kartik Month, as He blesses all immensely during Kartik, even for the smallest of offerings.

Place

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

Shree Peetha Nilaya - Bhakti Marga

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
