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...

Who are we, how did we get here, and why?

We're spirit. We're souls. Most souls live happily with Krishna in the spiritual world. Krishna is the Supreme Being. Some souls—us—rebel against His authority and want to try to enjoy outside their relationship with Him. To fulfill—and reform—this unnatural desire, Krishna creates the material world.

By constitution all spiritual souls belong in the spiritual world. Like fish out of water, we can never find lasting happiness in the material world. Here, we accept bodies subject to disease, destruction, and countless other miseries. Because we are here by choice, we cannot hold Krishna responsible for the suffering we must endure. Besides, in human life we always have the chance to give up our rebellious nature, cultivate our innate love for Krishna, and return to our home in the spiritual world.

Because of His intense love for each of us, Krishna does not abandon us here. As the Supersoul, He accompanies us in whatever body we accept. And He sends scriptures and spiritually awakened teachers to reveal our true, spiritual identity and lead us home.
