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...

Ratha-yatra in Jagannatha Puri

Sat, 2015-07-18

The annual Ratha-yatra, chariot festival, held in Puri, Orissa, India, is one of the largest festivals in India, attracting millions of pilgrims each year. Massive Deities of Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra (Krishna, appearing in a unique form, along with His Brother and Sister) are pulled on specially constructed, forty-five foot-high chariots through the center of Puri. It is the only opportunity that "non-Hindus" and foreigners (traditionally banned from entering the Jagannath temple) are allowed to see the Deities.
