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...

Madhva appeared in this world in Pajakshetra, Karnataka, South India. As a boy he was called Vasudeva, and after receiving initiation he was known as Purna Prajna. At the age of ten or twelve he accepted sannyasa (the renounced order of life) and became known as Ananda Tirtha. Madhva propounded the doctrine of tattva-vada, or suddha-dvaita-vada (purified dualism), which strongly opposes all doctrines of monism. His doctrine discerns five differences: between (1) the soul and God, (2) soul and soul, (3) the soul and matter, (4) God and matter, and (5) matter and matter. Madhva wrote forty-two books, including a commentary on the Bhagavad-gita that he explained before Vyasadeva at Badarikashrama. Madhva left the world in A.D. 1319 in Udupi at the Ananta-shayana temple.
