Sri Krsna’s Anna-prasana and Nama-karana

Chapter 13: Verse 51-60



51.He showed His form, resplendent with all powers, to Vasudeva, and then He became an infant.

52.Now He, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is not born of a mother’s womb, has appeared on the earth, left His maternity room and come to your home.

53.Employing His Yogamaya potency, Lord Krsna created His mother’s false pregnancy, filling her womb with air. At the appropriate time, presenting the illusion that He was born in the usual way, He revealed His transcendental form to Vasudeva.

54.Yuga after yuga He has different colours and names. O gopa, in the past He has been white, red, or yellow. Now He is black.

55.He is the Supreme Lord. In the Satya-yuga He was white and very splendid and powerful. In the Treta-yuga He was red. In the Dvapara-yuga He was yellow.

56.Now, in the Kali-yuga, He is black (krsna), handsome and very glorious. That is why He, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is called Krsna.

57.In the name Krsnah, the k stands for Lord Brahma, the r for Lord Sesa, the s for Lord Siva, the n for Yamaraja,...

58. ...the a for Lord Visnu who resides in Svetadvipa and the h for Nara-Narayana Rsi.

59.He is the master of all power and glory. He is the form of all forms. He is the resting place of everything. He is the seed from which everything has come. That is why He is called Krsna.

60.Krs and n both mean liberation, and the letter a means the generous giver. Because He is the giver of liberation He is called Krsna.
