The date of the month varies according to the full moon date in the Hindi Panchang. According to which Kartik month is the eighth month of the Hindi year. This year, Sharad Purnima is on 19th October, after which Kartik month will start from 21st October 2021. The importance of each lunar month has been told in the Puranas, but the special importance of Kartik month has been given. ‘Na kartikasmo maso na kriten sam yugam, neither Vedam sadrisham shastram na tirthan gangaya sam’ That is, there is no month like Kartik, no age like Satya Yuga, no scriptures like Vedas and no pilgrimage like Ganga. In the scriptures, the month of Kartik has been described as the best and auspicious of all the months. According to religious belief, following the fasting rule in this month brings the blessings of Lord Krishna. This Maha is said to be the door to attain salvation. It is considered very auspicious to do some work in this month.
