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 14 - Destination of persons in different modes

When a person dies with dominance of sattva, he attains the places of heavenly enjoyment of the worshippers of Hiraṇyagarbha (a form of Brahmā) and others. When one dies in the mode of passion, he takes birth among those engaged in fruitive activities or kāmya-karmas. Kāmya karmas are scripturally ordained acts which are optional, performed for fulfilling personal desires, such as begetting children or gaining wealth. When one dies in the mode of ignorance, he is born in the wombs of lower species like the animals.
