Different names of Lord Krishna


Vedic Synergy focuses on Ayurvedic Wellness and Spiritual healing and during our Advanced course we do expose our clients to concepts, and mantras from the Vedic texts (e.g. Bhagavad Gita)

During one of these sessions, one of my clients wanted clarity on a name in a chant which was but another name of Lord Krishna. On explaining this to him, he suggested that it would be good to know/understand the different ways how we refer to Lord Krishna. In keeping with this request, I have shown below some of the more common names used for Lord Krishna and the meaning of these names.

  • Acyuta – Never failing

  • Ajaya – Unconquerable

  • Ananta – Infinite

  • Damodara – Self-restrained

  • Devesh – Lord of the Gods
