It takes a team of dedicated people, working from an office with monthly and annual bills, to share Lord Krishna’s teachings with more than 4000 visitors a day (1.46 million per year) from 228 countries, territories and islands. Fall is the time when Krishna.com’s annual property tax ($5200), insurance ($3150), and email newsletter service ($2145) bills are due, among others, totaling $10,495. We are supported by your donations and need your help to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant. Please give a donation.

Krishna the Person

The Vedas say Krishna is the original person, but that He always appears young and attractive. He knows everything, He contains all of reality, and all other living beings are His inseparable parts. He is the all-powerful, supreme controller of all energies. He is known by different names in different cultures (such as God, Allah, and Jehovah, for example).

Sometimes Krishna sends His representatives—as saints, prophets, or His sons—to teach humankind about Him, and sometimes He comes Himself, as He did approximately 3000 B.C. He spoke the spiritual and philosophical teachings known as the Bhagavad-gita, which explains the essence of our spiritual identity and our relationship with God.
