Kartik Poornima Coloring Pages

The whole month of Kartik is considered to be the most sacred among all the twelve months of the year. During this month all the pious Hindus refrain from eating non-veg foods. All of them take pre-dawn bath and visit temples as a matter of routine. The last five days are considered more sacred, in which there is wide participation. Taken together the days are called 'Panchaka', the last day being the Kartik Poornima. Every day they take food only once in the afternoon which is known as 'Havishya'.
For all the five days the women after purificatory bath in the early morning draw beautiful flower-designs around the chaura (a small temple like structure with a Tulsi' plant overhead) with colour powders. Fasting for the day is commonly observed. Most of the Shiva temples get crowded with devotees offering prayers to Lord Shiva who is said to have killed the demon Tripurasura on this day. Group singing of kirtans and loud beating of Mridanga and cymbals continue for the whole day.
