Importance of Celebrating Kartikka in Vraja - Hari Bhakti Vilasa


"mantra-dravya-vihenaa ca vidhi-henaa ca pujanammanyate karttike devo mathurayaa yad-arcanam

Even if it is performed without the proper mantras and offerings and without following the rules and regulations, Lord Krishna considers worship of him in Mathura during Karttika to be the most perfect kind of worship. (Text 159)

yasya papasya yujyeta maraeanta vininkatiutac-chuddhy-artham idaa proktaa prayashcittaa su-nishcitam karttike mathurayaa vai shre-damodara-pujanam

”Worship of Lord Damodar in Mathura during the month of Karttika is the proper atonement

for a lifetime of sins. (Text 160)

yani sarvaei terthani nada nadyau saraasi cakarttike nivasanty atra mathure sarva-maeoale

During the month of Karttika, all holy streams, rivers, and lakes reside in the circle of Mathura. (Text 164)

karttike janma-sadane keshavasya ca ye narausakat pravinoau shre-kaneaa te yanti param avyayam

They who once enter Lord Keshava’s birthplace in Mathura in the month of Karttika will enter the spiritual world and meet Lord Krishna, the eternal Supreme Personality of Godhead. (Text 165)

"paropahasam uddishya karttike hari-pujayamathurayaa labhed bhaktya kia punau shraddhaya narau

A person who as a joke worships Lord Krishna in Mathura during Karttika attains the Lord’s supreme abode. What, then, can be said of they who worship the Lord during Karttika with faith and devotion?” (Text 166)
