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 we exist during Brahma's night, when everything material is annihilated?

In the Bhagavad Gita it says that once Brahma's night arrives, every living entity is annihilated and unmanifest, and thereafter they take rest in the body of Lord Vishnu. After the living entities are unmanifest in the body of Lord Vishnu, do they live in their spiritual bodies, since they don’t have material bodies? I assume that they live in their spiritual bodies, because all living entities are eternal, and if they don’t have a material body, still they must continue to exist, thus without being covered by this material body I assume that we become purely spiritual and live in our normal spiritual bodies.

Our Answer:

It is like they are asleep—as far as their conscious experience goes. Krishna remembers their karma and desires, and they get suitable bodies to continue to try to fulfill those material desires in the next creation.
