Kartik Navadwip Mandala Parikrama 2017
“An Absolutely Pure, Unadulterated Spiritual Activity”
Srila Sanatana Goswami in his Hari Bhakti Vilas quotes the Padma Purana, which states: “Kartik is the best, the purest of purifiers, and most glorious of all months. Kartik month is particularly dear to Lord Sri Krsna. This month is full of bhakta vatsalya. Any vrata, even the smallest, will yield huge results…Srimati Radhika is the presiding deity of the holy month of Kartik. Rupa Goswami and others refer to Radharani as Kartik Devi; in other words, Radhika is the goddess or presiding Deity of the Kartik Vrata.”
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura also stated that by performing Navadvip Mandala Parikrama, the whole world will be liberated.
Kartik Navadvip Mandala Parikrama is a perfect getaway to get absorbed in the pastimes of the Lord. We sometimes forget how beautiful Sri Mayapur Dhama is. After all, it is Srimati Radhika’s personal Dhama. For some residents who live in Mayapur, this Kartik Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama is something they eagerly look forward to every year, because it’s the time when they feel the most connected to the Dhama and the Lord’s pastimes. Visiting the places that you usually only read about in the scriptures is an incomparable experience.
What makes it even more special, is the amazing association you get. The devotees enact dramas, which make the pastimes of that place come to life, and not to mention how delectable the prasadam is. Everyone should do this parikrama at least once, and as soon as you get that taste, you’ll be eager for the next one…guaranteed!

Registration for Kartik Navadwip Mandala Parikrama 2017.
It is our great pleasure to announce ISKCON MAYAPUR’s 5th annual six-day Kartik Navadwip Mandal Parikrama during the most auspicious month of Kartik
(organized by the Mayapur Chandra’s). The Parikrama begins on October 18th and will end on October 25th, 2017.
There will be two days break, for Goverdhan puja (20th October) & Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance (23rd October) so that devotees can participate in the festivals.
For this year also, the parikrama will not stay overnight; we will leave each day from the ISKCON Mayapur campus at 5 AM and return no later than 5 PM. In order to give more time to chanting and hearing pastimes in the holy places, we have reduced some of the walking, and devotees will be transported faster to the various places via boat and vehicles.
Kartik is the most auspicious month to perform spiritual activities, and the weather is extremely pleasant and favorable, so please do not miss this opportunity to associate with the devotees, to hear and chant the glories of Lord Chaitanya, to bathe in the Ganges, and honor prasadam together in the various holy places.
