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...

Happiness, God consciousness, and fame

Do we need God's help to achieve happiness? It seems that many famous and successful people don't even believe in God.

Our Answer:
The Supreme Person is called parameshwara, the supreme controller. We need His sanction for success in any endeavor. The perfection of inner happiness is to establish a loving relationship with God. He's situated within us, He pervades everything, and He also resides in his original spiritual form in the spiritual world.

Material fame and success can't help anyone attain God. They can be used in God's service—by a God conscious person—but for those who only believe what they perceive with their gross senses, it's hard to make spiritual progress.
