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 18 - Tyāga in the mode of passion

One who gives up prescribed duties as troublesome, or from thinking that they are an unnecessary inconvenience for the body, performs tyāga in the mode of passion. If out of fear of bodily pain such as having difficulties to obtain the materials for sacrifice or disliking the discomfort of a morning bath, one renounces prescribed actions, even though knowing such actions performed without desire is a cause of liberation, his tyāga is in rajas. This is because discomfort is the quality of the mode of passion. Whether problems arise from our work, business or family, the mode of passion pushes us to avoid those difficulties. Such a person will not attain steadiness in jñana, which is the result of performance of the action. One who is in Kṛṣṇa consciousness should not give up earning money out of fear that he is performing fruitive activities. If by working one can engage his money in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, or if by rising early in the morning one can advance his transcendental Kṛṣṇa consciousness, one should not desist out of fear or because such activities are considered troublesome.
