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...

My chanting is not so good lately, so I feel like a hypocrite when I tell others to chant.

Thanks for your question.

This is a very common dilemma. Generally, devotees go through times when it's difficult to chant, and the mind becomes restless. It's important to just keep chanting. Try to chant in the early morning - no phones, no sounds, just a few pictures and a peaceful atmosphere.

Feeling guilty won't help, but being determined and enthusiastic to improve will be very helpful. Depending where you live, you may be able to attend one of the many japa retreats being held at various places. Also, there is an online japa (personal chanting) conference every Saturday morning which you can find out about via Krishna.com and perhaps you can attend that.

Association of devotees who are serious about chanting can be very helpful in improving your japa.

I hope this is helpful.
