Vrindavan Kartika Parikrama and Festival
Deena Bandhu (das) ACBSP (Vrindavan – IN): Sri Sri Krishna Balaram Mandir Kartika Parikrama Schedule
Kartika is glorified in the Puranas as very special for making spiritual advancement and the best place to be in Kartika is Sri Braja Dham. In fact this month is known as Damodar, since in the middle of this month, the Lord performed His very enchanting Damodar Lila. Kartika month also represents Radharani, and devotees perform special austerities to gain Her favor.
With great happiness in our hearts, we invite everyone to join in the auspicious Kartika Festival in Vrindavan. We have organized a wonderful variety of parikramas to the Holy Places of Krishna’s pastimes in Braja for all of you. Almost daily, we will be going by bus leaving at 7 AM and returning in time for lunch around 3 PM, unless otherwise noted. Sometimes we will also join up with Lokanatha Swami’s Braja Mandala Parikrama, which is celebrating their 25th anniversary, and enjoy the association of the many devotees who will be wandering around Braja on foot. Tickets will be available from the newly renovated Information Center next to the temple, and all of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples and accompanied family members are free!
The 30th of November is the Holy Disappearance Day Festival of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and we extend a warm invitation to all to come and commemorate this sacred occassion with us in Sri Vrindavan, where His Divine Grace is sitting in Samadhi. Leading up to this day, every evening, senior disciples will be relating their memories of Srila Prabhupada. One day before, we will take Srila Prabhupada in the very same palanquin from 1977 for a grand Sankirtan Procession past all the Goswami temples in Vrindavan.
