“I'm working for a company that designs and manufactures traction parts of locomotives. I believe that Krishna.com is a very efficient approach to spreading Krishna consciousness. It is a reliable source of things favorable for cultivation of the spiritual knowledge of Krishna consciousness. I like the easy access to information about Krishna and His devotees. As a source of information, online books, videos, music, and art, Krishna.com has significant impact on my life as an aspiring devotee. When I wish to know something more about Krishna, I just go on Krishna.com pages.” —Milan, Switzerland


“I think my testimony would be the most shocking. I am the bishop of the Christian Church. I love Jesus Christ and Lord Krishna. I have been practicing the maha-mantra. Each month, I always send donations to various Vaishnava clubs, meetings, churches. I like your web project. Next month I’m going to India for 45 days to visit the holy places.” —Bishop Taras, Ukraine


“Hare Krishna. I am the singer in a hardcore band called Next Step Up and I also have an office job. I have a very busy job and family life and I don't have the chance to get to the temple as often as I should like. Every day I receive from Krishna.com an excerpt from Bhagavad-gita that I read each morning before I start work. It really helps me to keep life and work in perspective and helps me remember the true goal in this human life. Krishna.com has made it easier for me to keep engaged in the ISKCON movement and helps to remind me to be ‘in this world, but not of this world.’ I travel a lot with my band, although not as much as I would like, and I try to keep this message of positivity and detachment from material possessions when meeting new fans around the world. You are doing a great job so far! Please keep it up! See attached band photo—I'm in the white hat." —J R, Maryland


“My first encounter with Krishna.com was as a 13-year-old doing a very general research project on the Hare Krishna movement. At that point in my life I hadn’t had any exposure to Eastern culture, but I had heard of the Hare Krishnas through their association with George Harrison. An internet search quickly brought me to Krishna.com, where not only did I find a wealth of knowledge but also helpful devotees in forums and live chat who were extremely willing to answer my questions and served as inspiration for my ensuing personal journey into Krishna consciousness.

A very nice devotee I met through the forums sent me my first Back to Godhead, japa mala, and neck beads, only asking in return that I use them. Ten years later, as an aspiring devotee, Krishna.com is still the first place I go when I have questions, concerns, need inspiration, or crave association.” —Amanda, Pennsylvania


“I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. One day, in Rio, devotees got on my bus and gave me a BTG magazine. It took one page to make me decide that this was the way I wanted to connect with God. On the next days I came across many vendors selling Krishna articles, posters, books, and even someone came to the hospital where I used to work with a peacock feather to give to me. I had my first Mac and looked for Krishna on the web, and there He was, beautiful, playing His flute on Krishna.com. There was a button on the home page that you could click and hear Prabhupada chanting the Maha Mantra.

I moved to the US and here I am, always going to Krishna.com to read articles, order all items I need, from books to clothing, subscribe to the BTG magazine, get recipes, listen to testimonials, and much more. I think all Krishna devotees should donate to the site, all over the world, to show that they appreciate having a place on the web that can help them on the Krishna consciousness road. After all, it is a site for all devotees, from East to West, North and South—just like Srila Prabhupada wanted. Thank you so much for all the joy you provide with this wonderful site. I hope it will stand strong for the next ten thousand years.” —Marina, New Jersey


“As a devotee in a secular family, I have almost no contact at all with other devotees. I chant and read in private. Krishna.com is my portal to the spiritual world. Words cannot describe my gratitude. Therefore with this gratitude and humility, I would like to offer my obeisances to you all.”
—Tony, company director in North England, UK

PS: I have been a devotee ever since, as a young supermarket manager with Asda (Wal-Mart), 30 years ago, I went to remove some 'nuisance' Hare Krishnas from the car park. I ended up buying the 'Goddess of Fortune' album, The Science of Self Realization, and the 10th Canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam and for me the rest is history!


“I'm still kind of new to Krishna Consciousness. I started to get into it around 2010 when I decided to become a vegetarian. The teachings have helped me become a better person. I know I have so much more to learn, but I try to live my life in a more spiritual way little by little. I don't live near a temple. I enjoy the videos and other content from members. Krishna.com is doing a good job.

I'm a poet and writer. I write books. I'm in the process of working on my first novel. Krishna.com has just a ton of information on so many topics. I always find something new. The teachings of Srila Prabhupada that Krishna.com provides have helped me become a better person. I wish Krishna.com continued success in spreading the word about Krishna consciousness.” —Charlie, Virginia


“I first read the Bhagavad-gita six months ago, and it completely enlightened me and answered all of the questions that I have ever had throughout my life and my struggle with the Christian religion. I feel that everyone needs to experience Krishna consciousness and without it there is no possibility of true happiness. So I felt it my duty to Krishna to give and help Krishna.com to spread the word and help enlighten as many people as possible. Krishna Consciousness is the most valuable thing in the world, and I would never trade it for anything. I am trying my best to enlighten anyone around me and it is spreading like fire.

I am a Navy Seal deployed to [a current war zone]. I have two years left till I get out, and I can’t wait for the day, but it doesn’t matter because I just spend my time in Krishna consciousness, and everything is always perfect. Krishna has taken care of everything and I have no complaints. I just feel so fortunate to have been given this chance to hear about Krishna. I am just now finishing the fourth canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam and starting the fifth." —Anonymous


“[Krishna.com’s “Teachings”] were the first teachings I had in Krishna consciousness. It was like a light bulb being turned on in my soul. I’ve directed many a curious person to them. I was a born-again, but not practicing Christian when I discovered Krishna consciousness on your website in 2005. I quit my job and moved into the San Diego ISKCON temple in July of 2007. I joined my fiance, now husband, in India. We returned to the states in Nov. 2011.

I am a brahmana initiated devotee of HH Lokanath Maharaj. Your teachings gave me a great start in my devotional life. If these teachings had not laid out the philosophy so simply and understandably, I may not have taken to it so readily. Prabhupada gave us the Absolute Truth, and you are continuing in his effort to bring this information to everyone. Thank you.” —Svayam Rasesvari Devi Dasi, Utah


"Congratulations on your 10th anniversary. I look forward to your daily online Bhagavad-gita  texts and Srila Prabhupada's translations & purports thereon. Your online facility is such a great method to spread Krishna consciousness as in today's high tech world just about everyone has access and finds it easier to read online at anytime of the day - your membership statistics of 7 million fortunate souls and 196 countries is evidence of this.

I'm a financial controller and chartered accountant at a large bank. I start my workday by first reading your emails prior to other emails. This gives me the right frame of mind to start my daily activities in this maya-laden material world. Also BTG magazine has been maintained at exceptionally high quality and Srila Prabhupada must surely be proud of your service in this regard. Keep up the great service in promoting Srila Prabhupada's sankirtan movement and ISKCON! Best wishes for greater success in the future." —Vijay, Australia

I wonder if the guy who said

I wonder if the guy who said he is a Bishop in the Christian Church is really from the Catholic church or if that was edited out. The various Christian Churches do not have Bishops.

There are many Christian sects who have bishops...

There are many, many Christian churches (i.e., "sects") who have bishops. It is certainly not limited to the Catholic or Episcopalian churches. There is no legal definition to the term "bishop". Any religious organization in the United States can use that term. For example, the Methodist Church has bishops. As do the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. And the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). And the New Apostolic Church. And the Pentecostal Church of God. And others. Do I need to go on?

Similarly, there are Christian churches (usually local churches) who have "Apostles" as a term of respect. The term, "apostle", too, is not a legal term. Yet there are church elders who will use that term to refer to themselves.
