Observing Karttika

A special month for increasing devotional service to Krishna.

We interviewed Lives of the Vaishnava Acharyas host Chaturatma Dasa to hear his experience of yearly taking vows to observe the month of Karttika, which in the Vaishnava tradition carries with it great spiritual benefits. He discusses the origin of this tradition, its roots in scripture, and discusses the many benefits anyone can achieve from observing certain practices each year during October and November, the month of Damodara or Karttika.
