Kartika is a name for a month that corresponds to October/November of the Western calendar. This month is considered a most auspicious time for performing spiritual activities.

The name Kartika refers to Srimati Radharani, the feminine form of the Absolute Truth and the dearmost companion of Krishna. Kartika is also known as the month of Damodara, a name of Krishna that refers to His babyhood pastime of being tied up by His loving mother after He was caught stealing butter.
