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...

New Year's Day

Wed, 2014-01-01

Today is Chaturthi, the fourth day of the moon, in the Vedic month of Narayan. Narayan is a name of one expansion of Krishna which means "maintainer and shelter of all naras, (people)."

The Vaishnava calendar considers Gaura Purnima "New Year's Day," since on that day we observe the appearance anniversary of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the most recent avatar of Krishna. This year, Gaura Purnima falls on March 8th.

Three days from today is Ekadasi, the eleventh day of the moon, which for Vaishnavas means fasting from grains and beans.

Pictured here are some of the fountains at ISKCON's Mayapur, India temple, lit up for an evening festival.
