Hari OM. Pranams.
Thank you Vanaja Amma for presenting verse wise names. Thank you Umaji for presenting the summary and relevant "Direct guidance to your problems" from Pujya Gurudev on this chapter.
Abhayji, sounds good. Thank You. Let's present them
..those names of our Bhagavan, the great Lord Shri Krisha, son of Devaki and Yashoda, Chitchor, Vanamali, Radharamana, Govinda, Nandalala.. (I am secretly very thrilled about getting unexpected chance to write Lord's names..like how a new bride feels in marriage ceremony when relatives push her to take her bridegroom's name)...OK ..so here you to. Let's call Him loudly, with love and devotion adding "Hey" to each of His name..e.g. Hey Achyuta, Hey Govinda, Hey Hrshikesha...etc
Achyuta - He who does not fall from His divine nature (Verse 29)
Govinda -The knower of Jivatman, The Ruler of senses, The Saviour of cows, An epithet of Indra - in the sense of "the finder of the cows." [According to the legend in Sant Parva, he got his name on "winning back the earth."](Verse 32)
Hrshikesha - The Lord of senses, (Hrishika - senses and Isha -Lord), The one with curly hair, The one with short (standing upright) hair [Hrsh -standing on end (in delight), (also curly) and Kesha -hair](Verse 15)
Janardana - He who is adored by devotees for the fulfillment of their desires, Killer of the demon Jana(Verse 36, 39, 44)
Keshava - He who has beautiful hair, He who removes all our sufferings and sorrows [ Keshava is a term spoilt from Kleshava meaning who removes all Klesha's], The Lord of Trinity: [K - Lord Brahma the creator, A - Lord Vishnu the Preserver, Ish - Lord Shankara, the destroyer, Va - Vapu i.e. body or Svarupa](Verse 31)
Krishna - The dark one, The remover of sins, He who is Brahman, He who attracts.(Verse 28, 41)
Madhava - The Lord of Lakshmi (Ma means Lakshmi and Dhava is controller.)(Verse 14, 37)
Madhusudana - He who destroyed the demon named Madhu. The who destroys Vasanas [Madhu in Vedik symbolism, is Karma phala-Impression of the past actions] (Verse 35)
