Kartik Poornima 2018
A beautiful mystical religious festival, Kartik Poornima is celebrated on the full moon night in the auspicious Hindu month of ‘Kartik’, usually in November. It is believed that all worship done in this month contributes to the spiritual upliftment of the individual. When Lord Ganesha (son of Lord Shiva-The Destroyer in the Hindu Trinity) was designated as Pratham Pujya (the first deity to be worshiped), his younger brother Kartikeya questioned the decision and it was then determined that an entire month in the year would be dedicated to Kartikeya to be called Kartik. During Kartik Poornima at the onset of winter and on this night the moon is at its brightest. Kartik Poornima is the only day of the year when Lord Brahma, the Creator of the Universe, is worshiped. Eternal Mewar has celebrated this festival in the past with great splendor. It is our privilege that some of the world’s most renowned artists like Maestro Sergio Synder, Dr. Mallika Sarabhai, Nirmala Seshadri, Hema Malini and others have performed here in the past.
