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...

The Good, the Bad, and the Incarcerated

If you've ever found yourself thinking, “I’m a nice person. Why do bad things happen to me?”

Or, “Why can’t we live in peace and happiness here and just be nice to each other?”

Or, “Why does there have to be so much violence, unrest, frustration, exploitation, loneliness, and suffering in the world?”

In a perfect world, these issues would be puzzling. But in a place where everybody is a criminal, what can you expect?

Here, Prabhupada explains this seldom-addressed truth very matter-of-factly; ninety percent (or more) of all souls are "good," but this world exists for the same reason prisons do: all smart governments make special arrangements for the small percentage of the population who refuse to “enjoy responsibly.”
