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...

The power of collective protest


I would like to use this site to acknowledge all the efforts that contributed to today’s storm in the Indian parliament, the Lok Sabha. The furore was caused by the attempted ban of the Bhagavad-gita as an ‘extremist’ literature in the town of Tomsk, Siberia.

Yesterday I raised the issue during a reading of the entire Bhagavad-gita with 400 participants and 150 online. I asked them to sign the petition of protest. Simultaneous protests were taking part in India and in other parts of the world.

The attempt to ban the Gita in Russia – nationally – through the aegis of a local court is extremely misguided. I am very happy that Indian politicians have responded in outrage to the attempted censure of the holy book of the Hindu faith, to the point of the speaker of Parliament having to close proceedings.
