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 Srivasa Thakura

Fri, 2015-06-12

Srivasa Pandita, or Srivasa Thakura, was a member of the Pancha-tattva, consisting of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and His four immediate expansions and energies. Every night, Mahaprabhu and His associates would chant the names of Krishna and dance in Srivasa Pandita's house. Srivasa Pandita never made any effort to support himself or his dependents. Because of his full dedication to Mahaprabhu and His mission, the Lord provided for all his needs.

Srivasa Thakura is mentioned in the Pancha-Tattva mantra, which Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's devotees often chant:

shri krishna chaitanya, prabhu nityananda, shri advaita, gadadhara

"I offer my obeisances to Sri Krishna Chaitanya, Prabhu Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Gadadhara, Srivasa, and all others in the line of devotion."
