Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

BG Chap 13 - The way all beings take birth

All entities, whether moving or non moving, high or low, appear from the combination of the field of activities (matter) and the knower of the field (jīva). They arise from the combination of the two knowers of the field with prakṛti. The Lord, controlling the jīva and prakṛti, puts them in motion. Jīva and prakṛti then mutually bind themselves up. The ‘creation’ of the living entities in this universe takes place by the appearance of their material bodies.
