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...

Is having a son required for achieving moksha (liberation)?

There are two things to address. Moksha means liberation from the material world. We want something higher than that. We want loving service to Krishna in the spiritual world. To achieve that, we need to develop love for Krishna. We do this by serving Him, remembering Him, and offering everything we do to Him. There is no mention of having a son.

There are certain desirable things in the material sphere, and having a son may be one of them. However, there are no material requirements for attaining love of God and going back to Him. The only requirement is loving service to His lotus feet.

I would suggest that you read the story of King Chitraketu from the Srimad-Bhagavatam 6th canto chapters 14-16. You will find it very enlightening.
