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 created Krishna?

If everything in this world has a source, or creator, and Krishna created this world, who created Krishna?

Our Answer:
It's true that everything we see has a source. Trees come from other trees, animals from other animals; watches come from watchmakers, etc. This material world is the world of cause and effect. Cause A creates effect B, cause B creates effect C, and so on.

The Absolute Truth, also known as Krishna, is different; He's defined as the cause of all causes, the ultimate source of all energies. Such a source is beyond our experience of this world of cause and effect. This is the subject of the Srimad-Bhagavatam and the Bhagavad-gita.

The supreme, personal cause has no other cause beyond Him. If someone or something else created Him, He wouldn't be supreme. But lots of evidence suggests that He is in fact the cause of all causes.

But don't just take our word for it. Explore the links below to see if the information there makes sense to you. If in the course of your research your discover a cause beyond Krishna, Contact Us immediately.

Bhagavad-gita, 7.7 "O conqueror of wealth, there is no truth superior to Me. Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread."

Srimad-Bhagavatam, 1.1.1 "I meditate upon Lord Sri Krishna because He is the Absolute Truth and the primeval cause of all causes of the creation, sustenance and destruction of the manifested universes. He is directly and indirectly conscious of all manifestations, and He is independent because there is no other cause beyond Him."

Bhagavad-gita, 2.12: "Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be."

Brahma-samhita, 5.1 "Krishna who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes."
