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 you know the spiritual world is real?

One question you might ask yourself is, how do you know anything beyond your experience is real? For example, some place you've never been? First you might hear about it, and consider whether the source of the information is trustworthy. Did you read about the place in a fantasy novel or in National Geographic? You might ask around to get multiple sources of information. If a picture emerges that sounds reasonable, you might develop a desire to see the place for yourself.

We say spiritual reality can be perceived right now by practice. The spiritual world is a place, and it is also a state of mind. You can be in a heavenly place and feel lousy, or be in a lousy place and feel great. The spiritual world is all around us, and is only hidden from our vision by a curtain made of our selfish desires to enjoy it separately from the supreme enjoyer, Krishna. That curtain is removed by practicing Krishna consciousness.
