Come and experience the festival of Kartik with a one-off evening of Kirtan singing and dance in Southall, UK. The magic of Vrindavan will be recreated as the festivities include live music, dancing, delicious vegetarian & vegan food- all in the presence of Paramahamsa Vishwananda.
Imagine yourself in the land of Vrindavan – the land of Divine Love! Become immersed in the chants of Radha and Krishna… the sound of the soaring flute… the beat of the drum. In the warm glow of the flickering Kartik lamp, dance in circles, in rhythm and in Love.
What happens at the Kartik Night?
During this celebration, Lord Krishna is represented by a large oil lamp and the other individual lights represent the love and devotion of the people. Therefore all will share the Divine light of Lord Krishna’s love by dancing around the Kartik lamp whilst singing kirtans and songs in praise of Lord Krishna and Sri Radha.
What is the holy month Kartik?
The month of Kartik (23 October to 21 November 2018) is considered the most holy and auspicious month of the year as it celebrates the childhood pastimes of Lord Krishna. It is during this period where Lord Krishna showed that He can only be bound by a devotee’s love. The pastimes of Lord Krishna will be awakened and experienced in your heart. It is believed that any devotional service offered during this period is said to bring even more spiritual merit (punya) than at any other time in the year.
Who is Paramahamsa Vishwananda?
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is an enlightened spiritual Master and founder of Bhakti Marga, the path of devotion. He is a leading Vaishnava Acharaya (leader) of the Sri Sampradaya. Paramahmsa Vishwananda easily and clearly explains the greater meaning of the life of Lord Krishna,via his many discourses, and commentaries on the Shreemad Bhagavatam, Gopi Gita and Shreemad Bhagavad Gita.
