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.


Krishna consciousness is everywhere—it’s not bound by mundane geography. Although you don't always see it, it’s the natural culture of the soul—common to everyone. It used to be common to all parts of this world, but over time, it has become fragmented into many different religions. It is still known and practiced mainly in India - which is mainly where Krishna appears when He incarnates on Earth.

Krishna Himself
One could say that Krishna Himself "started" Krishna consciousness. He came to Vrindavan, India (circa 3200 B.C.) and spoke the Bhagavad-gita—the comprehensive manual for Krishna consciousness.

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
Krishna came again as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, to West Bengal, India, at the end of the fifteenth century, to practically demonstrate to the general public how to practice Krishna consciousness.

Srila Prabhupada
The teacher, or acharya responsible for bringing Krishna consciousness out of India at the end of the twentieth century and spreading it all over the world is His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
