Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

Does the universe develop by a conscious or unconscious process?

Krishna’s expansion Maha-Vishnu creates the material world. From Him the innumerable material universes come forth and are withdrawn in due course.

The Bhagavad-gita explains that the underlying, absolute cause of all causes is an unlimited conscious being and that the manifestations of material energy are exhibitions of that being’s conscious will and plan.

The idea of a creator agrees with our experience, because we see that everything develops by someone’s plan. The more complex the plan, the more intelligent the person who developed it. Krishna’s intelligence is unlimited, surely beyond our comprehension. As tiny expansions of Krishna’s energy, we can create something small. But He can easily create the whole material world.

"I meditate upon Lord Sri Krishna because He is the Absolute Truth and the primeval cause of all causes of the creation, sustenance and destruction of the manifested universes. He is directly and indirectly conscious of all manifestations, and He is independent because there is no other cause beyond Him." —Vyasadeva, Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.1.1
