Preparations for the holy month of Kartik are in full swing at ISKCON Punjabi Bagh. These preparations include setting the mood inside through changes on the outside. Yasoda Damodar deities are being set up on a special stage next to the altar in the temple hall for the month. Infrastructural adjustments to accommodate the devotee influx each evening for lamp offering is also underway. The entire temple hall will be lit up with lamps each evening, as devotees illuminate their hearts with the lamp of love, to invite the lord to reside deep inside it.
