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 is Krishna invisible?

Much mention is made of Krishna as the Supreme Being, the greatest of all, the all-powerful controller, and the most attractive personality. Why, then, do we not see Him? In our experience, those who are famous and powerful are also highly visible (in the media, etc.).

Our Answer:

Krishna is the most social being. He's the source of all personalities and of personality itself. At the same time, Krishna values His privacy. He prefers the company of those who prefer His company. He also respects the wishes of those who don't want relationships with Him. He doesn't force Himself on anyone.

His energies are so vast that He can create, maintain, and annihilate unlimited universes by His will, without needing to be personally present. Likewise, heads of state often make decisions affecting the lives of millions of people who never see them personally.

Prison inmates certainly don't routinely get to see high-ranking government officials. In a similar way, all of us in the material world at some point in the past decided to reject God's company and along with it the rules of conduct befitting Krishna's devotees. As a result, we've been offered residence in this temporary, material universe, which is similar to a prison.

This world is made as a replica of the spiritual world, with one key difference—Krishna is absent. Krishna is omnipresent by His energy and by His presence in every atom as Paramatma, but as far as we're concerned, He's invisible, unless He chooses to reveal Himself to us by spiritual revelation.
