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 1.9 - Bhīṣma's recollection of the Pāṇḍavas' suffering

Bhīṣma congratulated the Pāṇḍavas, and overwhelmed by love and affection, he shed tears of ecstasy. Bhīṣma recollected the terrible sufferings and injustices the Pāṇḍavas underwent for being the sons of religion personified. They managed to survive being protected by vipra (brāhmaṇas), dharma (religion) and acyuta (God). Thus Yudhiṣṭhira should not regret the great massacre of the battle. As long as a person is fully in cooperation with the wishes of the Lord, guided by the brāhmaṇas and Vaiṣṇavas and strictly following the religious principles, one has no cause for despondency, however trying the circumstances of life. Bhīṣma said that the king should not live his life in suffering since that is dangerous and improper. If others lived like that, that was their concern. The improper situation had arisen because of Viṣṇu, the mover and maintainer of the whole universe.
