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 1.7 - Arjuna's dilemma

Kṛṣṇa smilingly told Arjuna that a friend of a brāhmaṇa was not to be killed, but if he is an aggressor, he had to be killed. So Arjuna had to fulfill his promise to his wife and also at the same time act for the satisfaction of Bhīma and the Lord. Droṇa was a true brāhmaṇa but because he stood in the battlefield he was killed. Aśvatthāmā was an aggressor but he stood without any weapons. Thus he cannot be killed. And Arjuna had promised Draupadī that he would kill his sons’ murderer. He had to please Bhīma who wanted Aśvatthāma to be killed; he had to please Draupadī who did not want him killed; and he had to please the Lord because both Bhīma and Draupadī were dear to Him. This was the dilemma before Arjuna.
