“Krishna.com’s Teachings were the first teachings I had in Krishna consciousness. It was like a light bulb being turned on in my soul. I’ve directed many a curious person to them. I was a born-again, but not practicing Christian when I discovered Krishna consciousness on your website. I quit my job and moved into the temple. [Now] I am a brahmana initiated devotee of HH Lokanath Maharaj. Your teachings gave me a great start in my devotional life."—Svayam Rasesvari, Utah
“I work for a company that manufactures train engine parts. I believe that Krishna.com is a very efficient approach to spreading Krishna consciousness. As a source of information, online books, videos, music, and art, Krishna.com has significant impact on my life as an aspiring devotee. When I wish to know something more about Krishna, I just go on Krishna.com pages.” —Milan, Switzerland
“I am the singer in a hardcore band and I also have an office job. I have a very busy job and family life and I don't have the chance to get to the temple as often as I should like. Every day I receive from Krishna.com an excerpt from Bhagavad-gita that I read each morning before I start work. It really helps me to keep life and work in perspective and helps me remember the true goal in this human life. Krishna.com has made it easier for me to keep engaged in the ISKCON movement and helps to remind me to be ‘in this world, but not of this world." —J.R., Maryland
“My first encounter with Krishna.com was as a 13-year-old doing a research project on the Hare Krishna movement. At that point I hadn’t had any exposure to Eastern culture, but I had heard of the Hare Krishnas through their association with George Harrison. An Internet search quickly brought me to Krishna.com, where not only did I find a wealth of knowledge but also helpful devotees in forums and live chat who were extremely willing to answer my questions and served as inspiration for my ensuing personal journey into Krishna consciousness.
A very nice devotee I met through the forums sent me my first Back to Godhead, japa mala, and neck beads, only asking in return that I use them. Ten years later, as an aspiring devotee, Krishna.com is still the first place I go when I have questions, concerns, need inspiration, or crave association.” —Amanda, Pennsylvania
“As a devotee in a secular family, I have almost no contact at all with other devotees. I chant and read in private. Krishna.com is my portal to the spiritual world. Words cannot describe my gratitude. Therefore with this gratitude and humility, I would like to offer my obeisances to you all.”—Tony, England, UK
PS: I have been a devotee ever since, as a young supermarket manager with Asda (Wal-Mart), 30 years ago, I went to remove some 'nuisance' Hare Krishnas from the car park. I ended up buying the 'Goddess of Fortune' album, The Science of Self Realization, and the 10th Canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam, and for me the rest is history!
“I'm still kind of new to Krishna Consciousness. I started to get into it when I decided to become a vegetarian. The teachings have helped me become a better person. I know I have so much more to learn, but I try to live my life in a more spiritual way little by little. I don't live near a temple. I enjoy the videos and other content from members. Krishna.com is doing a good job. I'm a poet and writer. I write books. I'm in the process of working on my first novel. Krishna.com has just a ton of information on so many topics. I always find something new.” —Charlie, Virginia
“I first read the Bhagavad-gita six months ago, and it completely enlightened me and answered all of the questions that I have ever had throughout my life. I feel that everyone needs to experience Krishna consciousness and without it there is no possibility of true happiness. So I felt it my duty to Krishna to give and help Krishna.com to spread the word and help enlighten as many people as possible. Krishna Consciousness is the most valuable thing in the world, and I would never trade it for anything. I am trying my best to enlighten anyone around me and it is spreading like fire.
I am a Navy Seal deployed to [a current war zone]. I have two years left till I get out, and I can’t wait for the day, but it doesn’t matter because I just spend my time in Krishna consciousness, and everything is always perfect. Krishna has taken care of everything and I have no complaints. I just feel so fortunate to have been given this chance to hear about Krishna. I am just now finishing the fourth canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam and starting the fifth." —Anonymous
