KIDS SPECIAL:
PHOTO CHALLENGE

October 25 - November 10, 2021

Light the world with love this Karthik month

 

As the sweetest holiest  month of the year dawns, we can daily remember the most enchanting lila that took place in this very month. 

 

One morning , Little Krishna stole  butter that was hanging from the ceiling and after running in  fear of Mother Yasoda, He was  finally  caught and bound by her ropes of  love  to a wooden grinding mortar. 

 

This most charming  pastime is celebrated throughout this month of Karthik. It is Krishna’s favourite month  wherein  the slightest endeavour to please Him reaps the greatest spiritual rewards. 

 

Therefore during this month around the world we daily sing the Damodarashtakam prayer and offer a ghee lamp to Lord Damodara with a yearning  that very soon our hearts will also become bound to Him again.

So kids, this month we would like for as many of you to participate in showing a ghee lamp to Lord Damodara so that you can  engage in this most delightful month of Karthik and obtain the greatest spiritual blessings. 

 

Your challenge is to send in photos like the one shown below of you offering a ghee lamp to Lord Damodara. You can be as creative as you like in your photos, and towards the end of Karthik Masthe Hare Krsna TV  will broadcast your photo offerings for many to appreciate.

Let us surprise Lord Damodara this year with a big kids lamp offering!  We will start from October 25 to November 20, 2021.
