Deepotsava

Deepotsava 2020 Hare Krishna Movement Visakhapatnam Sri Sri Nitai Gauranga Mandir

Deepotsava is also known as the festival of lights, is celebrated in the month of Kartika (October – November) every year. It is a month-long festival commemorating Damodara-lila, the sweet pastime of baby Krishna stealing butter and consequently being tied to a mortar by His dear mother Yashoda. In Sanskrit, “dama” means rope and “udara” means belly. Damodara refers to Krishna who was bound with a rope by His mother Yashoda.

It is not possible to describe the glories of Kartika month. In this month devotees observe strict vows (Damodara Vrata) and worship Lord Damodara by offering a ghee lamp every day. It is said that by offering a lamp to Lord Hari in the month of Kartika one gets unlimited prosperity, beauty and wealth. All the sins committed in thousands and millions of births perish, and one attains the eternal spiritual world where there is no suffering.

Entire event will be telecasted live in YouTube. Join us live in our celebrations.

This year we are celebrating Deepotsava from October 31 to November 30, 2020.
You may offer various sevas on this auspicious occasion and seek the blessings of Lord Damodara.
