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 14 - Chapter summary

One remains in saṁsāra by combination with the guṇas. One becomes liberated by surpassing the guṇas. This is attained by bhakti alone. By applying our intelligence to understanding the nature of the guṇas, we can understand the power of the Supersoul, who controls the modes. If we are free from envy, we will understand our insignificance and surrender to that controller. Thus by the process of bhakti, we can become free from the three modes of material nature.

The importance of Kṛṣṇa in this chapter:

14.2 – Coming to Kṛṣṇa - mama sādharmyam āgatāḥ – having attained a nature like my own
14.3 – It is Kṛṣṇa who impregnates the material substance called Brahman, which is His womb
14.4 – Kṛṣṇa is the seed-giving father for all species of life
14.19 – One who sees only the guṇas at work and knows the Lord is above them attains Kṛṣṇa’s nature
14.26 – How yoga is construed with bhakti - mām ca yo ‘vyabhicāreṇa bhakti yogena sevate – one who serves me with unfailing bhakti yoga
14.27 – Kṛṣṇa is the foundation of Brahman
