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...

Benefits of chanting and going back to Godhead

What are the benefits of chanting—to go back to Godhead? To control our senses? Why should anyone want to go back to Godhead?

Our Answer:
Chanting has many benefits. Our minds become purified so we can understand our spiritual nature. Right now we identify ourselves with our bodies and minds and thus we're often in pain or perplexity. When we realize our spiritual nature through chanting, we will no longer identify with these.

Both controlling the senses and going back to Godhead can be accomplished by chanting. Krishna likes when we call His names with sincerity, and since He's the Lord of all benedictions, all spiritual and material perfections are possible for one who chants.

One big difference between here (this material world) and going back to Godhead (the spiritual world) is that in the spiritual world there's no inconvenience of death, which tears us away from our friends, family, and property and forces us to start from square one in our next life.
