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...

Hare Krisna. The Krishna.com countdown to Sri Krishna Janmashtami has begun. Check it out here:

4-Day Countdown: Why Krishna Appears

Humans (at least us reasonable ones) crave reasons: "Why did the chicken cross the road? Why is the sky blue? Why is there air?."

Our questioning spirit manifests early:

Time for bed, honey.


It's eight o'clock.

Why do I have to go to bed at eight o'clock?

Because I said so.


Because I'm your mother.


Because I gave birth to you.


Time for bed, honey.


Why does Krishna appear here?

The "whys" of the unlimited are hard to grasp for us endlessly questioning types. This is because the absolute truth--although He contains all logic--is also beyond all logic. Lord Brahma, the exceedingly well-informed engineer of universal creation, once tried (unsuccessfully) to figure out supreme reality by himself. Finally, he was able to understand Krishna as "sarva karana karanam" ("the cause of all causes"). In other words, the buck actually stops somewhere. That "somewhere" is Krishna's desire.

But why does Krishna come to this planet? Because He wants to. Why does He want to? What does He have to gain from coming here?
