Karttika ends. All glories to Karttika!
I got a lot of feedback that the japa journal was appreciated. Thank you, dear readership.
I think one of my main realizations for Karttika was the importance of spending quality time with the holy name. The holy name is a person as it is non-different from Krishna. By spending time with a person whom we have a natural relationship our rapport and love for them grows. We then enjoy their company. When we are focused and not indifferent when the holy name appears, a real bond develops. We become happy anytime are in the company of the holy name. That’s the blessings of Karttika – sambandha or relationship to the holy name. kirtaniya sada harih.
