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...

Disappearance of Svarupa Damodara Gosvami & Sivananda Sena

Sat, 2015-07-18

Svarupa Damodar Goswami was the personal secretary of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He is said to have been like a “second Mahaprabhu” because he deeply understood the Lord's conclusions on Krishna bhakti, devotional service to Krishna. He was a great scholar as well as an expert musician. In the company of Srila Swarupa Damodara Goswami at Jagannatha Puri, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu would taste the deepest emotions of devotional service.

Sivananda Sena, an associate of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, used all his possessions and wealth in the service of the Lord and His devotees. Every year he would lead a party of 200 devotees from Bengal to Jagannatha Puri to attend the annual Ratha-yatra festival. He would arrange for the devotees' food, tolls, ferries, and lodging. Shivananda Sena's family and servants were all dedicated to Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.


Paintings are of Svarupa Damodara Goswami and the devotees trying to revive Lord Chaitanya to external consciousness, and of Lord Nityananda kicking Sivananda Sena.
