Socially, our name is our identity It is believed that the meaning of our name has a profound effect on our lives. This is the reason why the naming ceremony is considered very important in Hinduism.
It’s all about human life, but have you ever wondered who named the gods, God? What is the story behind the name of Lord Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu?
Sri Krishna, there is hardly a more beautiful name in this universe Lord Krishna was the son of Devaki and Vasudeva but was brought up in Mathura by Nanda Baba and Yashoda Maiya.
The person who gives karma is greater than the one who gives birth Krishna’s affection was more for his nurturing mother than for the mother who gave birth to him. We have heard many stories related to Lord Krishna, but few know who gave him his beloved name.
According to the prophecy, Kansha was to be killed by the eighth child of Devaki, and Vasudeva Kansha was very scared by this Due to this fear, he killed his sister’s seven children, but due to circumstances, he could not kill his eighth child, Krishna.
Due to supernatural events, Krishna reached Mathura and was replaced by Vasudeva Nanda Baba’s daughter. Kansha tried to kill the child thinking it was the eighth child of Devi and Vasudeva, but the newborn took the form of Devi and warned Kansha about her impending death.
Kansha started killing all the children of Mathura. Nanda Baba and Yashoda hid their nephews Balaram and Krishna. But she was always worried about how the two children would be named. One day Acharya Garg, the great scholar of that time, came to Mathura.
When Nanda Baba decided to meet him, he went to Nanda Baba’s house. While there, he learned of the ongoing concerns about the names of both children.
Acharya said, “When sin and oppression increase on the earth, then Lord Vishnu has taken various incarnations and freed the whole world from the oppression of sinners. Both these children were born for the same purpose. ”
Regarding Nanda Baba’s nephew, Acharya said, “He is very powerful and powerful. His name will be Balaram.” Speaking about Lord Krishna, Acharya Garg said, “This child is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who was born for the benefit of the world. Lord Vishnu incarnated as red, sometimes white or sometimes yellow, but this time he has assumed the color black, so this child will be named ‘Krishna’. “
