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 Lord's reciprocation with His devotees

Both the Lord and the pure devotees are called nivṛtti-guṇa-vṛtti because they have no attachment for false enjoyment. The pure devotees are property of the Lord, and the Lord is the property of the pure devotees, and they are transcendentally attached to one another. The Lord’s treasure is unalloyed devotees, who are the abodes of prema. The akiñcanas are poor and do not have the wealth arising from the guṇas of māyā. They have the Lord who is devoid of all material enjoyment. For others, the Lord has nothing to reciprocate and therefore, He is called ātmārāma, self-satisfied. He is disinterested in those who are not devotees. He forgives His devotees even if they offend Him. He is the master of the monists who want to merge into His existence, but the devotees enter into the transcendental pastimes of the Lord. Thus the Lord assists those devotees who are interested in liberation.
