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...

Why does Krishna wear peacock feathers?

It should be understood that Krishna is a person. He has His likes and dislikes, just as we all do. He likes it when His devotees offer Him things out of love.

When He plays in the forest with His friends, He decorates Himself with the feathers left from the peacock. Once Lord Krishna created a wonderful festival in the forest by playing on His flute. In gratitude, the peacocks offered their feathers as dakshina (tribute). They requested the Lord to wear them in His turban and He agreed.

Here's a recording of a dear Godsister of mine relaying the story of why Krishna wears a peacock feather. Please listen. It is very wonderful: Why Krishna Wears Peacock Feathers
Hope this answer is helpful and you enjoy the recording.
