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...

Swirling Petals

Now you too can master the world-famous candy-stripe garland design technique, as seen at the ISKCON Radha-Gopinatha temple in Chowpatty, in India. Easy when you know how!

I first started making garlands twenty years ago when I was a new bhaktin (aspiring devotee). I think I was traumatized by the experience. Not that it isn't a pleasure to make garlands for the Lord in His deity form. It wasn't that I couldn't make a nice garland either. It just would always take me much longer to make a garland than it would for anyone else, and I would always make mistakes. And I never felt satisfied that my service was actually suitable to offer. Eventually, I realized that it was a service better suited to others.
