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 - The three modes of material nature

The previous chapter (13) described the conditioned soul as distinct from material nature yet entangled by it, trapped within his field of activities. This chapter reveals in detail how the living entity is limited and controlled within his field by the powerful shackles of material nature – the three modes – goodness, passion and ignorance. The many symptoms of the disappearance of the guṇas, and the cause of their disappearance, bhakti, is also described. Kṛṣṇa explains what the modes are, how association with the guṇas take place, the result of association with the guṇas, and how one becomes freed from the guṇas.
