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...

Chanting God's Names

The names of God are identical to Him and are therefore transcendental. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu taught that chanting the great mantra “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare” is the sublime method for reviving our transcendental consciousness, or Krishna consciousness.

By chanting this mantra one can feel transcendental happiness coming through from the spiritual realm. Most of us are entangled in material life, but even a materially engrossed person is quickly raised to the spiritual platform by chanting.

The mantra is a spiritual call to the Lord and His internal energy. The mood of the chanting is like that of a child crying for its mother. It is a request to be returned to our natural position of pure devotional service to Krishna. By chanting the mantra sincerely, we invoke the mercy of the Lord's internal energy (Radha), who helps us achieve the grace of Krishna.

If we can do only one thing for our ultimate benefit, it should be to chant the Hare Krishna mantra.
