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 glorification of the Lord by the ladies

Absorbed in the thought of the transcendental qualities of the Lord, the ladies began to talk of Him which was more attractive than the hymns of the Vedas. In all Vedic literatures the goal is Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The glories of the Lord are depicted in the Vedas, Rāmāyaṇa and Mahābhārata. Anything sung in praise of the Lord is Śruti-mantra. The Upaniṣads glorify the Lord indirectly but the talks of the ladies were directly spoken of the Lord and thus they were more pleasing to the heart. Their talks appeared to be more valuable than the learned brāhmaṇas’ benedictions. Their conversations were the embodiment of the Upaniṣads and so the śrutis were happy with that.
