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...

Disappearance of Devananda Pandita

Tue, 2016-01-05

Devananda Pandita was a professional reciter of Srimad-Bhagavatam who turned to pure devotional service during the time of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Devananda Pandita used to explain Srimad-Bhagavatam through impersonalistic interpretations.

The biography of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's early pastimes, Chaitanya Bhagavata, explains that because Devananda Pandita had once showed disrespect to Srivas Thakura, a great devotee of Mahaprabhu, he wasn't able to understand the essence of the Bhagavatam, which is love and devotion for Krishna. But when Devananda Pandita later did some service for another devotee, Mahaprabhu was pleased with him and revealed to him the path of devotion to Krishna.
