Significance of the Kartik Month

kartik
The importance of the Kartik month and looks at why lighting lamps is so significant in this month.This is a culture where we did not do anything that is not scientific and naturally for the enhancement of the human being, so that they can reach towards their ultimate well being or liberation. In this process, the lighting of the lamp is significant because in our visual experience, it is light which makes us see. It plays a significant role in our perception of the world around us. If there is no light, there is no experience of anything around us. Light is important in this context. But the significance of this day is not just about light or about lighting a lamp.

This phase of the year, which is Dakshinayana, is referred to as the Sadhana pada. The Kartik Masam or Kartik month is very significant because this is when the year is starting to move into what is called Kaivalya pada. In terms of sadhana, Dakshinayana is for purification, Uttarayan is for enlightenment. The Sadhana pada was the time of plowing, seeding and cultivating. Now, the time for the inner harvest of whatever sadhana you have done has come.

The lamp is indicative of enlightenment, awareness, consciousness and ultimate liberation. All this is symbolized with the lamps that we light.
This is not just about lighting one lamp. Usually, the tradition said that as the Kartik month comes, you must double the lamps that you light because one thing is, the day has become shorter so you need a little more light to do your daily activity. Another thing is to indicate that you are multiplying the light in your life.

Origin of Trishul – the Trident of Shiva

Trishul, the trident, is one among the symbols of Shiva. Shiva in human form carries the Trishula. Origin of Trident as per Vishnu Purana is associated with Surya, the Sun God. It is believed that Trishul was carved out using matter from Sun.

Legend has that Surya married Samjna, the daughter of Vishwakarma. But Samjna was unhappy with her married life due to the unbearable heat of Surya. She complained to Vishwakarma, who agreed to solve the problem.

It is believed that Surya agreed to reduce his heat to accommodate Samjna and have a happy married life.

Another legend has that to reduce the heat of Surya, Vishwakarma removed a part of the burning matter from Surya – it said that Surya was grounded on a grinding machine for the purpose.

It is said that 1/8th of the heat of Surya was reduced.

The matter that was removed from Surya fell on earth and from it was created the Trishula – the trident of Shiva.

Vishwakarma created the Trishula using the matter from sun and gave it to Shiva.

Pandas chant slokas and then Bhandaris (members of a local tribal community) climb the domes of the temples and tie the sacred threads. This is a powerful ritual which has great benefits for the lives of devotees.
