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...

A. Rupa Goswami


Rupa Goswami appeared in 1489. Chief among the six Goswamis of Vrndavana who directly followed Lord Chaitanya, he was renowned as a great scholar and devotee of Lord Krishna. Together with his elder brother, Sanatana Goswami, he once served as a high-ranking officer under Hussain Shah. After meeting Lord Chaitanya, however, both brothers abandoned their posts to dedicate themselves to presenting Lord Chaitanya's teachings systematically by (1) uncovering Lord Krishna's lost places of pastimes; (2) installing Deities and establishing Their worship; (3) writing devotional literature; and (4) teaching the rules of bhakti-yoga, or devotional service. Srila Rupa Goswami wrote many books, including Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu (“The Nectar of Devotion”), which gives the essence of all scriptures regarding bhakti-yoga. He left this world in 1564.
