Krishna is the Supreme Being, the all attractive, all desirable incarnation of God. He is the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu (God in the form of preserver) who appears on earth as a divine cattle herder and charioteer to maintain order and keep the positive forces of humanity victorious. Krishna is most associated with the practice of Bhakti and when we chant the different names of Krishna, we call Him into our hearts. We become the Gopis (milk maidens) who long to be united with Him. We become the flute that He animates with His breath.
