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 15 - The entrapment of the living entity within the tree

Depending upon which branch a living entity is located, he will possess a certain material body and a specific type of senses, and according to the combination of modes that influences that part of the tree, he will be attracted to particular “twigs,” or sense objects. Thus the living entity, traveling from one birth to the next, from the higher branches of demigod life to the lower branches of animal life, seeks pleasure, but in fact attains only further entrapment in fruitive action and future deaths. With the depletion of the enjoyment of the results of previous karma, the impressions resulting from that enjoyment give rise to new karma on the earth planet. After enjoying the results of one’s actions, those actions become stimulus for actions in another human birth. Thus the jīva gets trapped in the cycle of birth and death.
