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 - Symptoms by which one knows himself to be beyond guṇas

One who is beyond the guṇas does not hate or lament, the appearance of illumination (the effect of sattva), activity (the effect of rajas) or delusion (effect of tamas) thinking that they would cause suffering by transforming into their respective effects, nor desires their disappearance along with their products thinking that they would cause happiness. Such a person is beyond hatred and attachment, and this cannot be known to others, but to oneself. This is the internal quality of the person beyond the modes. He does not lament when the effects of the guṇas appear, nor rejoices when the effects disappear.
