Karthik Masam is auspicious to both the devotees of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.

Kartik Masa is the eighth month in a traditional Hindu Telugu calendar followed in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh,Maharashtra, Gujarat and Karnataka.

Karthika Masam is one of the most auspicious months in Hinduism and called with different names like Karthikai, Kartika, Karthikam, or Kartik.

People perform various rituals, vratas and austerities. Nagula Chavithi one of the most important rituals dedicated to Nagas or Snakes.

Karthika Somavaram vrat:

Special rituals and fasting are observed on Mondays in Kartik Month.Mondays are generally dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. Specially, Mondays in Sravana Masam and Kartika Masam are considered as most auspicious by Lord Shiva devotees.
Somavaram (Monday) gets its name from one of thousand names of Lord Shiva -Someshwara. The crescent moon (Soma) on the matted locks of Shiva gives him the name Someshwara.
It is believed that the moon observed Somavara Vratam to escape from the curse of Daksha and to get the blessings from Lord Shiva and a spot in His matted locks.

Importance of Kartik Masam:

The lunar calendar has been divided into two parts Dakshinayana and Uttararyana. Karthika Masam comes under Dakshinayana. In terms of sadhana, Dakshinayana is for purification, Uttarayan is for enlightenment.
Sadhana means a process by which one would get salvation. Out of all the months in Dakshinayana Karthika Masam is best suited for Sadhana. Hence Karthika Masam is one of the most auspicious months of the lunar calendar.
According to Padma Purana and Skanda Purana, the month of Kartik provides four kinds of benefits religious, economic, good marital life and enlightenment.
The importance and significance of the month Kartik is first narrated by Lord Narayana to Brahma, Brahma to Narada and by Narada to King Prithu for the welfare of mankind.
