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 - Immediate effects of the modes

From sattva is born knowledge characterized by revelation or truth. This leads to happiness. From rajas comes greed, a particular craving, which cannot be satisfied by indulgence in sense objects. This leads to a little happiness and plenty of grief. From tamas arise inattention, illusion and ignorance, which all lead to sorrow with total unconsciousness. When the mode of goodness is developed, people will see things as they are. In the mode of ignorance, people are just like animals and cannot see things clearly. In the mode of passion, people become greedy, and their hankering for sense enjoyment has no limit. Thus the immediate effects give rise to the results of actions discussed previously.
