Krishna Janmashtami 2021: Ashtottara Shatanamavali Of Lord Krishna, 108 Names With Mantra To Chant

In Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna is the main character and is considered to be a direct descendant of God. Devotees believe that he was born around 3,228 BCE in Mathura, India. In Puranas, it is said that Lord Krishna's life marks the time between Dvapara Yuga and Kali Yuga. He is also considered to be the ninth reincarnation of Lord Vishnu.

According to the legend, he was the eighth son of Devaki and Vasudeva in Mathura and was raised by his foster parents- Yashoda and Nanda in Gokul, Mathura. As per Hindu calendar, it is believed that he was born during the midnight of Ashtami Tithi during Krishna Paksha and therefore, his birth anniversary is celebrated across India as Krishna Janmashtami. Devotees celebrate the day by keeping fasts, offering prayers, distributing sweets, doing night vigils and visiting temples of Lord Krishna.
