www.everydaygita.com Most Vaishnava websites are like online magazines or newspapers. The ones like magazines present images and text with a focus on particular subjects, such as chanting the maha-mantra, book distribution, collections of kirtanas, or the teachings of acharyas.

Some sites present information about particular temples and the presiding deities there, and others inform about Vaishnava organizations, such as research centers, prasada-distribution groups, or educational institutions.

The news sites report on local and international events, letting us see the programs and activities going on around the world. Some Vaishnava news sites focus internally, mainly catering to devotees; others focus externally, intending to give nondevotees an insight into the world of ISKCON.

Another kind of website devotees use is called a blog. The term blog is short for web log. It can work much like a diary, where people post entries about their experiences and day-to-day activities. This kind of site is used to share things about oneself with others. A personal blog is often used to communicate travel experiences or allow friends and family to keep up-to-date with someone’s activities.

Devotees also create blogs to spread Krishna consciousness. Using a blog, you can share information and realizations about Krishna with a worldwide audience from your laptop in your living room or your tablet in your kitchen.

www.everydaygita.com is a blog by Vrindavana Vinodini Dasi from Montreal, Canada. She started the blog to commemorate Gita Jayanti, the anniversary of the day Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita on the sacred ground of Kurukshetra.

Bhagavad-gita As It Is is one of my favorite books,” writes Vrindavana Vinodini. “In fact, I often comment that it’s my handbook for life. If I have a question or a problem, the Gita never lets me down.”

She decided to start a blog and write her thoughts and realizations about every verse in the Gita.
