Kartik Vrata 2010 : under the benign guidance of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha Goswami Maharaj, President Acharya: Sree Chaitanya Gaudiya Math.
Sree Chaitanya Gaudiya Math is organizing this year's main Kartik Function in Guwahati, Assam.
Kartik is the best, the purest of purifiers, and most glorious of all months. Kartika month is particularly dear to Lord Sri Krsna. This month is full of bhakta vatsalya. Any vrata, even the smallest, will yield huge results. The effect of performing a Kartika Vrata lasts for one hundred lifetimes, whereas ordinary vratas only last for one lifetime!
Sree Chaitanya Gaudiya Math devotees observe the intense sadhana of eight period of devotional service as mentioned in Bhajan Rahasya. Srila Gurudev advises that everyone should try to participate in the Kartik Vrata observance.
The festival will have daily Nagar Sankirtan in different parts of Guwahati.
Hence we request you to participate in this devotional congregation and make your life successful.
