The Glories of Kartik Month
Glories of offering a lamp in Kartika In the skanda Purana, Lord Brahma and Sage Narada, converse that “the month of Kartika is very dear to Lord Krsna”. When one offers a lamp during the month of Kartika, his sins of many thousands and millions of births perish in half an eye blink. Even if there is no mantras, ni pious deeds, and no purity, everything becomes perfect when a person offers a lamp during the month of Kartika. A person who during the month of Kartika offers a lamp to Lord Keshava has already performed all yajnas (sacrifice for the pleasure of the Lord) and bathing in al the holy rivers. The ancestors say “when someone in our family pleases Lord Keshava by offering Him a lamp during the month of Kartika, then by the mercy of the Lord who holds the Sudarshan-Chakra in His hand, we will all attain liberation. To one who either at home or in a temple offers a lamp during the month of Kartika, Lord Vasudeva gives a great result. A person who. offer a lamp to Lord Krishna during the month of Damodara (Kartika) becomes very glorious and fortune. No sins exist anywhere in the three worlds that will not be purified by offering a lamp to Lord Keshava during Kartika. A person who offers a lamp to Lord Damodara during Kartika attains the eternal spiritual world where there is no suffering.
