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...

SB 1.10 - The glories of Dvārakā

Dvārakā defeated the glories of the heavenly planets and enhanced the celebrity of the earth. The inhabitants there constantly saw the soul of all living beings (Kṛṣṇa) in His loving feature. He glanced at them and favored them with sweet smiles. The standard of comforts in the heavenly planets are far greater than those on earth. Thus the heavenly planets are more celebrated than the earth. But because of the presence of Kṛṣṇa in Dvārakā, the celebrity of earth defeated that of the heavenly planets. When one’s acquired virtue is finished one has to come back again from the heavenly planets to earth. Dvārakā surpasses Vaikuṇṭha because the residents see Kṛṣṇa who resided there to give mercy. On the earth the holy places of Dvārakā, Mathurā and Vṛndāvana are very important because of the pastimes of the Lord in these places. The Lord always desires to have all the living beings in their constitutional position to enjoy life with Him. His attractive features and sweet smiles go deep into the heart of everyone, and once it is so done, the living being is admitted into the kingdom of God.
