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...

What do I do if sex thoughts agitate my mind?

Q: About following the 4 regulative principles; I can follow 3 very easily. I am trying to be a brahmacari... but sex thoughts agitate my mind.

A: Practice makes perfect.
Try to engage the mind in

1: practical service

2: hearing and chanting about Krishna.

In this way, it will not have time to contemplate the objects of the senses.

Do not purposely go places or do things that you have experience will agitate your mind sexually. And do not get despondent, as it takes time to train up the lusty mind.

Meditating on the beautiful form of Krishna, beginning with His lotus feet, helps free the mind from lust. It may seem hard to believe, but if you try it, you will see it works.

Q: Thanks a lot. I will try to follow your advice.
