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...

Social System

On the premise that human life is meant for spiritual progress, the Vedic literature presents as the ideal social system one that trains people, materially and spiritually, in four occupational groups and four stages of life. These occur naturally throughout the world and are not based on the family one is born into. The four occupational groups are the intellectuals, the governing/martial class, the mercantile/productive class, and the working class. And the four stages of life are student life, married/working life, retired life, and the renounced stage of life for full spiritual dedication.

When everyone is situated comfortably according to his or her unique nature, there is smooth social interaction. Members of a peaceful society can concentrate on spiritual topics, and everyone should be encouraged to perform his or her duties as an offering to God. At the heart of the Vedic social system is the principle that a peaceful, prosperous society results when people put God in the center of their lives.

The Vedic system stresses simple, thoughtful living, which includes respect and protection for each person, the environment, and all living things, in line with Krishna’s natural laws.
