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...

What are the benefits of chanting?

Q : what are the benefits of chanting?

A : The benefits are various. Our minds become purified so we can understand our spiritual nature. Right now we identify ourselves with our bodies and minds and thus we are often in pain or perplexity. When we realize our spiritual nature through chanting, we will no longer identify with these.

Q : can I say, “to go back to Godhead, to control our senses?”

A : Yes, both can be accomplished by chanting.

Q : don’t think that I am testing you. I really want to know

A : Yes. All spiritual and material perfections are possible for one who chants for the chanting pleases the Lord of all benedictions.

Q : if some one asks me, “why do you want to go back to Godhead?” then how should I reply?

A : There is not the inconvenience of death which periodically separates us from our beloved friends, family, and property, and forces us to start from square one in our next life.

Q : how can we please our guru (spiritual master)?

A : Just do what the guru says, respectfully considering him as God's representative.
