The month of Kartik manifests and personifies the unlimited compassion of Lord Krishna’s eternal pleasure potency, Srimati Radharani. In Vrindavan any devotional service performed, has the potency to purify our hearts and connect us to Lord Krishna, several times more than anywhere else.
“To be in Vrindavan in the association of devotees, during the month of Kartik, is an inconceivable good fortune and we should never think that we deserve this. It has been given to us – it is a matchless gift.”
We can appreciate this gift if our hearts are truly grateful and if we express that gratitude through our humble appreciation for the mercy of Srila Prabhupada, all the Vaishnava acaryas, all the assembled Vaishnavas, Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundar and also through our service attitude.
