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 know God exists, and that He's Krishna?

Since God isn't visible to us, how do we know He exists, and that He is Krishna?

Our Answer:

To be able to see the Supreme Being personally before you, in His spiritual form, requires great qualification. Just as you can't demand the president of a country to appear before you, you can't demand that God appears before you.

Many people throughout history have independently realized and confirmed Krishna's existence and His identity as the Supreme Person.

Scriptures like Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam state Krishna's existence and divinity as scientifically provable facts.

By following Krishna's instructions in Bhagavad-gita, anyone can see how their life improves.

Krishna also shows Himself as the deity and as His holy name.

In the Bhagavad-gita, Krishna thoroughly defines the Supreme Person—and acknowledges that He Himself is that Person—in such a way that any impartial, reasonable reader would be convinced that He is, in fact, God.

For example:

"I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me." (Bg. 10.8).

"I am seated in everyone's heart and from Me come remembrance, knowledge, and forgetfulness." (Bg. 15.15).

If someone genuinely wants to know the identity of the Supreme Person, the above statements will be helpful signposts on the path to God-realization. On the other hand, if someone wishes to avoid the question of God/Krishna's existence entirely, no amount of logic, practical advice, or scriptural reference will be sufficient to convince them either that God exists or that God is Krishna. Krishna is a Person, and His energies work in such a way as to bewilder atheists and attract His devotees.
