Message for the Day….” People think of the ordinary meaning of ‘Krishna’ as ‘one who is dark’ and forget the deeper and truer meanings of the Lord’s Name. ‘Krishna’ has three meanings”

People think of the ordinary meaning of ‘Krishna’ as ‘one who is dark’ and forget the deeper and truer meanings of the Lord’s Name. ‘Krishna’ has three meanings. The first one is ‘Krishyati iti Krishnah’ (The one who cultivates is Krishna). What must be cultivated? The field of one’s heart (Hridaya-Kshethra). Lord Krishna cultivates the field of our heart by removing the weeds of bad qualities, watering it with love, ploughing it through Sadhana, and sowing the seeds of devotion. The second meaning is “Karshati iti Krishnah” (The one who attracts you is Krishna). Krishna attracts you through His eyes, His speech, His sports, and by His every action. Through His words, He softens and calms the hearts of even those filled with hatred and makes them rejoice. A third meaning of ‘Krishna’ is ‘Kushyati iti Krishna’ (The One who is always blissful). Krishna is always in a state of bliss! Sage Garga thus, aptly named the child ‘Krishna.’
