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...

How do souls get into the material world? If spirit is superior to matter, why would anyone want a material body?


Krishna gives us material bodies because of our desire to enjoy separately from Him. But material bodies are foreign to us, so we need help accepting them. For that purpose, Brahma first creates fives types of ignorance that cover our intelligence:

  • forgetfulness of our identity as a soul
  • thinking the body to be ourselves
  • the mad pursuit of material enjoyment
  • anger
  • considering the death of the body to be our extinction

After God (Maha-Vishnu) supplies the basic ingredients, He empowers Brahma, the first created being, as a secondary creator and universal manager.

Brahma creates all the species of life, which are the bodies for us souls to inhabit, as well as all the planets, upon which we reside.
