Lord Krishna is known as the God of Protection, Compassion, Tenderness, and Love. Moreover, his acute wisdom, statesmanship, war strategies and philosophy accounted in the Mahabharata, are not just religious sermons but also the way of life for the Krishna Bhakts. During his life, Lord Krishna has taken up various roles, and responsibilities and emulated a lot of characters which resultantly gave him various names. Lord Krishna has got 108 names to himself such as Nand Gopal, Jannath, Kamalnath, Madan, Murlidhar, Shyam, Rannchhord and so on.
According to Hindi Scripture, Mahabharata, Lord Krishna was born to Vasudeva and Devki in Mathura. He was born with a purpose to eradicate evil and instil good moral values in humankind. His preachings to Arjun on the battlefield Kurukshetra have given the world the Bhagwat Gita, which is one of the most important and significant religious scriptures for Hindus. His philosophies of life and war have paved the path for many people who follow his preachings.
