Damodara Month House Programs
Specifically, in the month of Damodara, one should daily worship Lord Damodara and take bath early in the morning, give charity and follow a fasting vow. This is the duty of Vaisnavas.
(HARI BHAKTI VILASA 16/3 from SKANDA PURANA)
We at the Hare Krsna Ashram Malaysia on the most wonderful month of Karthik, conduct daily house programs at the residences of our well-wishers, devotees, and friends. This program brings all auspiciousness to the homes, environment and to everyone involved. The program will generally consist of Bhajans, prayers, Arati and some Prasadam for everyone so that they can get enlivened spiritually during this important period.
