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...

Sri Ishopanishad

The 4 Defects of the Conditioned Soul

Namaste to all,

In the introduction of the Sri Ishopanishad, Srila Prabhupada lectured about the 4 kinds of defects of the conditioned soul namely: 1. he must commit mistakes 2. to be illusioned 3. cheating propensity 4. imperfect senses.

I have never forgotten this 4 defects eversince. Remembrance makes me a little more humble and more alert of my speech and actions. And increases my desire to be free from the conditioned state. The conditioned state is full of suffering and devoid of hope for peace and happiness. I hope by learning and practicing Krishna Consciousness, I attain the elusive peace and happiness.

Hare Krishna to all,
