The eighth avatar of Mahavishnu, Lord Krishna' teachings in the form of the Bhagavad Gita, are held sacred by all Hindus. Lord Krishna's life is said to mark the beginning of the Kal yuga (also considered as the current age) and the passing of the Dvapara age.
His synonyms are said to have been traced way back to the 1st millennium BCE literature. His blessings are what many of us seek and we visit so many temples just to make that connection and be one with the divine even if for a second. To get his blessings and to please him, here a few mantras.
