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 16 - How one should act in this world

One should know what is to be done and what is not to be done according to the regulation of the scriptures. Understanding what is stated in the scripture, one should perform actions in this world. Since the tendency for lust, anger and greed which are contrary to scripture deviate one from the goal of life, scripture in the form of Vedas, which are perfect and not written by a human being, is the authority in matters of what to do and what not to do. The scriptures are free of the four faults of bhrama (error), karaṇapāṭava (limitation of the senses), pramāda (inattention) and vipralipsā (cheating). Thus one should follow the positive and negative injunctions of scriptures. Knowing about the prescribed and forbidden actions, one should act in this world. For Arjuna, this means to perform actions such as fighting and performing sacrifices in this world of karma, for teaching people, while avoiding the forbidden actions.
