This lecture was given on November 3, 2012 at Krishna Balaram Temple in Vrindavan/India by Lokanath Swami and will figure as 24 Hour Kirtan Mandali Radio Podcast #2.
According to Bhakti Rasamrita Sindhu the month of Kartik is the best of months. In 1972, 40 years ago, considering this to be a very special month, Srila Prabhupada stopped all his other engagements, all his travels and rushed to Vrindavan: “My plan is to come to Vrindavan for Kartik”, he wrote. “And I want to stay in Radha Damodar temple until the end of November, yearly. I will lecture daily in the court yard, especially for the benefit of the devotees…”
Lokanath Swami continues to narrate various incidents during the month of Kartik with Srila Prabhupada and then goes on with a Damodarastakam meditation by explaining the meaning of the Damodarastakam prayers.
