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...

SB 1.11 - Kṛṣṇa is like the sun

Kṛṣṇa is like the sun and without Him all our knowledge is either false or partial. By the grace of the Lord the pure devotees cannot be in the darkness of ignorance. By being in His presence we can see both ourselves and the Lord with His different energies. The citizens said that without looking at the Lord’s attractive face with joyful glances, whose smiles vanquish all sufferings, they could not exist. Just as the sun’s rays are related with the sun disc, the living beings are eternally related with Kṛṣṇa. By the artificial covering of the cloud, the sun may not be visible for sometime. Similarly, the living entities are separated from the Lord by the artificial covering of māyā. When this illusion is removed the living being can see the Lord face to face, and all his miseries are at once removed. After hearing these words from the citizens, Kṛṣṇa entered the city.
