Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Holy Places

What makes a holy place holy? Wherever God goes—or any of His incarnations or representatives go— that place becomes spiritually charged.

Visiting these places enhances the benefits of any spiritual activity done there. The sights and sounds there remind us of transcendence. Holy places also attract saintly persons, so anyone who goes there gets the benefit of their company.

Any Krishna temple—any place where He is the focus—is also a holy place. So if we cannot live in a place like Vrindavan or Mayapur, we can turn our homes into holy places and regularly visit the Lord's temples.
