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 makes a person (like myself) inclined toward transcendental realization at all?

by Laxmimoni dasi

Very often a living entity has performed pious acts in previous lives, which cause one to be attracted to transcendental, spiritual subjects. It is certainly possible that you are such a soul, that, having had previous spiritual activity but not yet reaching perfection, you are continuing on your spiritual path.

The human form of life is very precious and to come into contact with Krishna, even more rare. The soul who actually takes up the process seriously is even rarer still, and, finally, Krishna says that one who achieves perfection, sa mahatma sudurlabhah - "such a great soul is very rare."

So, if you can remain fixed in your determination and engage steadily in Krishna's service, you can achieve perfection - as you are already a rare soul.
