Kartika Month Celabrations


As you all know, the sacred and auspicious month of Kartika will be beginning on Friday, November 5th, 2021. This month is very auspicious for Lord Siva and Lord Keshava (Damodara). The saying “Kalaudevo aMaheswaraha '' indicates that Lord Siva is the designated deity for the current times known as Kaliyuga. In this “Yuga” (the current age), Lord Siva is the one who can free people from all kinds of troubles, negativities, and sins.
In this day and age, people face all kinds of troubles involving health, education, profession, progeny, family, businesses, etc. All of these troubles are said to be a result of “Kali.” This is why, to succeed in all matters including physical, psychological, and social, one must pray to and put their trust in Lord Siva.

As we approach the start of the month of Kartika, we are inviting you all to schedule your yearly Satyanarayana Vratam, and Ekavara or Ekadashi Rudrabhishekam at your home or at the temple. We highly recommend that everyone schedule these pujas, since this is a very auspicious time. Our priest can bring the Sivaligam to your home and perform the Abhishekam and puja there if that is what you would prefer. If you would like to perform a more elaborate puja in this auspicious month you may choose either Mahalingarchana or Sahasra Lingarchana.

In addition, on the day of Kartika Pournima in the month of Kartika (Thursday, 18th November), the temple is organizing an annual Samoohika Mahasatyannarayana Vratam. Please come to the temple on that day and join in the Vratam in person.

Before the last Monday of the month of Kartika ( 28th, November), the temple is organizing a Laksha Bilwarchana, Samoohika Rudrabhishekam, and Maha Jyotirlingarchana in the temple. All the ingredients will be provided by the temple. Please join us and be blessed by the Divine.
