Kartik, also known as the month of Damodara, is a month for deepening one's love for Krishna. It is holiest month of the year. During this month, devotees make extra vows, perform extra spiritual activities, and generally worship Krishna in His form as a young boy, Damodara, who was once bound at the waist by His mother, Yashoda, as a punishment for His mischievous childhood pastimes.
Every day night at 7.30pm during Month of Kartik *Oct 20 to Nov 21* we will have special arti. You can join us online and those who are in Mangalore can visit temple and participate.

वैष्णवानां यथा शम्भु: पुराणानामिदं तथा ॥
