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...

Putting Other Goals in Perspective

Because a devotee of Lord Krishna is desireless, he is peaceful. Fruitive workers desire material enjoyment, jnanis desire liberation, and yogis desire material opulence; therefore they are all full of desires and cannot be peaceful.—Sri Chaitanya, Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya 19.149

There are as many goals as there are people, but all goals other than pure love of God can be put into three categories:

  • people seek material enjoyment (even within the context of religion)
  • people seek salvation, or liberation
  • people seek perfections of mystic or subtle powers

Each goal has varying degrees of benefit. But each goal, along with its benefits, is material, temporary, and based on selfish desires, no matter how enticing or seemingly lofty.

While living in the material world, we naturally pursue temporary goals. But when love of God gradually begins to awaken within the heart, we souls naturally lose interest in temporary things that offer us no ultimate benefit.
