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 if I don't have a Tulasi plant? Can I still worship Krishna?

What if I don't have a tulasi plant? Can I still worship Krishna?

Our Answer:
Of course. Growing tulasi is not always possible, especially in colder areas where she has to be protected from the cold. Sometimes temples in northern climates keep a framed photograph of Tulasi on the altar if they aren't able to maintain actual plants. Krishna is very kind, and does not reject His devotees' worship on a technicality. At the same time, He is pleased when His devotees make an effort to do things—such as growing and maintaining tulasi plants—just for His pleasure.
