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 1.5 - The glory of Śrīla Prabhupāda

A saintly person is always absorbed in glorifying the Lord because by broadcasting the holy name and fame of the Lord, the polluted atmosphere of the world would change. In the age of Kali there is always quarrel on slight provocation. There is systematic propaganda to stop glorification of the Lord. Thus there is a great need to disseminate the message of Bhāgavatam all over the world. If this message is received only by the leaders of the world, there will be a change of heart, and naturally the people in general will follow them.

Śrīla Prabhupāda says that his attempt to write Bhāgavatam to revive God consciousness and re-spiritualize the world would be fraught with difficulties. He says there would be many literary discrepancies despite his honest attempt to present it in a proper way. But he was confident that his attempt would succeed due to it being an honest one to glorify the Lord. After all, it is a technical science of spiritual values, and if this great literature of Bhāgavatam is understood by the people, there would be success. Śrīla Prabhupāda indeed succeeded in respiritualizing the whole world with Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

The world is full of so many unwanted literatures filled with materialistic ideas of sense enjoyment. People in general want to read but because their minds are polluted they want such literatures. Thus transcendental literatures like Śrīmad Bhāgavatam will not only diminish the activities of the corrupt mind in general, but also will supply food for their hankering after reading some interesting literature. Systematic propaganda for popularizing reading of Bhagavad gītā and Śrīmad Bhāgavatam, would act like sugar candy for the jaundice-like condition of sense gratification.
