    Damodarastakam

    I learned that the song Damodarastakam is to be sung in the month of Kartik. How long does this month take?

    If i may add for those who follow Amavasya as against Purnima calender, the month of Kartik starts next day after Diwali. All months in Hindu calendar last approx 4 weeks.

    Happy Diwali
    Jai Shree Krishna

    Namaste,

    Purnima signifies light, Amavasya signifies darkness. Why would anyone follow a calender with darkness as its reference point?
    Just kidding, Ganeshji.
    We do have different calenders and different new year's day celebrated by different geographical/ethnic groups in India.
    Fortunately, we all do agree on when the Diwali should be celebrated, otherwise we would be the laughing stock of the planet, with the Northerners celebrating it on one day and the Gujrati and Tamil pride declaring a different day for celebrating Shri Ram's coming back to Ayodhaya.

    Pranam.

    Good question if you put it like that but that is not as simple as that. one is using descending count and other ascending.Amavasya followers uses new moon as reference point.After the darkest night the new moon begin, just like the first light the day begin, purnima followers would be following their month from mid point full moon just like saying day begins at mid day, so there you have it. you make your own decision as to which is more logical.

    There is no danger here because these days are based on particular reference of alignment of planets.
