It’s that time of year again when we need to ask for your help to keep this important project going. Behind the scenes at Krishna.com you’ll find a dedicated team of devotees who work on improving the website, adding new content, taking care of thousands of visitors and their inquiries each month. You’ll also find an office building under renovation, with insurance, property taxes and utility bills. It’s that time of year when we need to pay our annual fees for hosting Krishna.com on several web servers. Every good endeavor requires some money to continue, so also Krishna.com. Please help us spread Sri Krishna’s message on the Internet by contributing a donation. You can give a one-time gift, or become a monthly patron. Click here. (Thank you!)

Karma

Karma is a universal law of action and reaction. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and "what goes around comes around" partially describe how karma works—for whatever action we do, there's a reaction. Our future depends on how we act now.

Our karma, to a large degree, dictates our lot in life (rich/poor, educated/uneducated, unattractive/beautiful, etc.). It's also what forces us to be born and die perpetually. "Good" karma (we do good works and enjoy material happiness) or "bad" karma (we perform immoral or irreligious work, and suffer later on) are both bad, because to enjoy or suffer we have to be born and die again in future material bodies. But anyone completely surrendered to the will of God is free from the effects of karma.
