It’s that time of year again when we need to ask for your help to keep this important project going. Behind the scenes at Krishna.com you’ll find a dedicated team of devotees who work on improving the website, adding new content, taking care of thousands of visitors and their inquiries each month. You’ll also find an office building under renovation, with insurance, property taxes and utility bills. It’s that time of year when we need to pay our annual fees for hosting Krishna.com on several web servers. Every good endeavor requires some money to continue, so also Krishna.com. Please help us spread Sri Krishna’s message on the Internet by contributing a donation. You can give a one-time gift, or become a monthly patron. Click here. (Thank you!)

Today is GopAshTami

Hare KRshNa

Today is GopAshTami, the ashTami (8th day of the Lunar fortnight) when Shri KRshNa officially entered from kaumArya stage (upto 5 yrs) to 'pauganda' (6 to 10 years) and was allowed to herd the cows, take them to the pastures.

A bit too 'young' , but who can stop the eternal Supreme Person - Govinda GopAl from uniting with His cows a.k.a. Go-dhan ?
