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...

Is there any scientific explanation for the concept of changing bodies?

Q: Is there any scientific explanation for the concept of changing bodies? Why do we suffer mentally even after chanting daily?

A: Of course, Dr. Ian Stevenson's 3000 cases of children remembering past lives point to the reality of changing bodies.

Q: I was at a funeral in India where the body is burnt. The resultant is a lump of matter. Is soul recoverable from that matter of rubble?

A: The body is burned so the soul will not hover around it. The soul leaves the body at death and does not remain in the body.

Q: Thank you. Materially I say that I chant most times inattentively. I am always in offense. So, in the material concept, I am not qualified to enter the kingdom of Krishna. Spiritually, is that the same concept? I am told Krishna is very merciful. All He wants a little pinch of true love.

A: Inattention is a big offense--because Krishna is the holy name--inattention to chanting is a big problem. When we chant inattentively, it is like we are inviting Krishna, and then when He comes we are ignoring Him. Krishna is attracted by even a little love, but what He wants is pure devotion. Because Krishna is merciful, He can show mercy to those who chant inattentively, but if we want to develop love for Krishna, we should not settle for inattentive chanting.
