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...

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.


Handicap not Disability

I appreciate the achievements of these handicapped persons. They are overachievers who can provide inspiration to many non-handicapped persons. Their assets of determination and hard work compensates for their physical liabilities.
