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...

BG Chap 11 - Qualification to see the universal form

Not by reciting the Vedas, not by considering the meaning of sacrifice by studying the Kalpa-sūtras and Mīmāṁsā scriptures, not by charity to qualified people, not by actions of agnihotra sacrifice and other rituals, not by torturing the body drying it up with intense penance, does one qualify to see the universal form. Without bhakti, none of these methods would allow one to see the form. This form was visible to Arjuna and the devas because they had devotion. Neither sādhana nor personal endeavor can enable one to see the form because it can be seen only by devotees who have received special benediction to see it. It was not possible for humans of this planet to see that form but it was possible for the many devas who are devotees to see that form, since they were not on this planet.
