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 1.8 - The devotees accept the Lord's mercy

Lord Kṛṣṇa caused three well performed Aśvamedha yajñas to be conducted by Yudhiṣṭhira and thus caused the king’s fame to be glorified in all directions like that of Indra, who had performed one hundred such sacrifices. Yudhiṣṭhira was a pure devotee of the Lord, and thus his fame was on an equal level with Indra, although Yudhiṣṭhira had performed only three sacrifices. The mercy of the Lord is always equally distributed everywhere but the pure devotees who accept that mercy are glorified. The Lord, although playing the part of a kṣatriya, was worshipped by the brāhmaṇas headed by Vyāsa. Observing the social customs to set an example, the Lord also reciprocated their greetings. Then He prepared for His departure.
