108 Names Of Krishna

Why Did Lord Krishna Have so Many Names Compared to Lord Rama?

Lord Krishna Have so Many Names Compared to Lord Rama

Krishna employs all divine powers to protect dharma in the universe and during his time on earth, which is why he has so many names. Sri Ram, on the other hand, never resorted to his divine abilities or you can say he never used his Maya in comparison to Shri Krishna. As he suffered like a human, fought like a human, loved like a human, and was thus given the names “maryada purushottam” and “ekapatni vratasta.”

Though he has many names, they are not more than that of Krishna due to these reasons.
