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 - Nārada's constant remembrance of the Lord

Ladies like Rukmiṇī, Satyabhāma and Jāmbavatī were forcibly taken away by the Lord from their svayaṁvara ceremonies after He defeated many powerful kings headed by Śiśupāla. And other ladies were also taken away by Him after He killed Bhaumāsura and thousands of his assistants. All these ladies are glorious. Rukmiṇī was the daughter of the king of Vidarbha, who wanted to give her to Kṛṣṇa, but her brother wished she marry Śiśupāla. Kṛṣṇa defeated Śiśupāla and carried Rukmiṇī away. Kṛṣṇa also married the 16,100 girls kept in captive by Bhaumāsura. The girls prayed piteously to the Lord who released them all after killing the demon. The Lord accepted their prayers and married them all. Kṛṣṇa never left them alone at home and always pleased them with valuable presentations. Even though these girls were without purity, by engagement in the service of the Lord all their designative disqualifications were removed and they became eligible to associate with the Lord. Later on Nārada would become amazed after personally witnessing the Lord’s dealings with the queens. Nārada had asked Kṛṣṇa to favor him so that he could constantly think of the Lord as he traveled about. And after seeing the Lord’s amazing display of potency with His queens, Nārada had enough content to constantly remember Kṛṣṇa.
