Ashtottara Shatanamavali of Lord Krishna: 108 names with mantra to chant of Krishna Janmashtami

Lord Krishna is believed to be the ninth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He was the eighth son born to Devaki and Vasudeva in Mathura. However, he was raised by his foster parents – Yashoda and Nanda – in Mathura’s Gokul. He was born during midnight on Ashtami Tithi during Krishna Paksha in Hindu calendar. Devotees commemorate the day as Janmashtami or birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. In 2019, Krishna Janmashtami falls on August 23 and Dahi Handi on August 24.
