108 Names of Lord Krishna – Sri Krishna Ashtottara Shatanamavali


The great exponent of the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna is one of the most powerful incarnations of Vishnu, the Godhead of the Hindu Trinity of deities. Of all the Vishnu avataras he is the most popular, and perhaps of all Hindu gods the one closest to the heart of the masses. Krishna was dark and extremely handsome. Lord Krishna is the embodiment of love and divine joy, that destroys all pain and sin. He is the protector of sacred utterances and cows. Krishna is an instigator of all forms of knowledge and born to establish the religion of love.

Like 108 names of Lord Shiva, Lord Rama, Lord Ganesha, Lord Vishnu even Lord Krishna is extolled through his 108 names during the puja rituals either by the priests or by the worshippers themselves.
