Kartik Maas, aim and means
Kartik meditation: the desired outcome of sadhana bhakti or devotional practice is bhava (loving sentiment). The sadhana in itself is essentially the continuous engagement of our senses, mind and words in ways by which we remember Krishna. Foremost amongst such engagements is the recitation of Krishna's names in murmur or choir. This is the aim (sadhya) and the means (sadhana).
