When the Husband Is Not a Devotee

Govardhana Puja & Annakut
Annakuta literally means "a hill of food." This festival was observed by Madhavendra Puri, a contemporary of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, when he discovered the Gopala deity at Govardhana, Vrindavana. On this day devotees offer Krishna large quantities and great varieties of vegetarian food.
Ratha Yatra- Festival of  Chariot
We feel grateful to Her Grace Abhaya Mudra Dasi for making the astrological calculations about David Hoey and Ratnavali Prabhus life. Sincere thanks also to His Grace Patita Pavana Prabhu in Mithuna Twiins Astrological Services (dkrishna108@yahoo.com) for creating this amazing article and allowing us to publish it on this website.
The auspicious month of Damadara
The auspicious Month of Kartik, more popular as the Month of Damodara, is here once again heralding the spiritually enlivening 'Festival of Lights'.
Mother Yasoda bound little mischievous Krishna with ropes to the grinding mortar for having stolen butter and thus He came to be known as Damodara. The significance is in that the Lord of the Universe can be bound only by the rope of pure love.
Damodarastakam
The Damodarastakam is sung daily during the month of Karthik. Damodar is one of Krishna's names. When he was a baby, his mother Yashoda tied him to a milk churn to keep him from troubling neighbours, stealing their butter and causing general havok with his brother Balarama. Only the love of a mother can bind the Lord in such a way and Damodarastakam prays that we can bind the Lord in our hearts in such a way.
