Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Winning over Physical Adversity


The Paralympics in London is producing some astonishing displays of physical prowess, some of them in sports we never knew existed. Wheelchair rugby, for instance – a game even rougher than its able-bodied counterpart. Blind Judo? Who would have thought that even possible? And the swimmer Ellie Simmonds (above) has demonstrated her amazing speed in the water, despite being affected by dwarfism.

So I was interested in this thoughtful piece by Melanie Phillips, and I thought I’d share it with you.
