What is the name of lord Krishna favorite flower?

Tulsi or Tulasi leaves is the most important leaf used in pujas and prayers dedicated to Lord Krishna. Tulasi acts both as a flower and leaf. In most temples it is also offered as Prasada. It is also known as Krishna Tulsi - a dark variety of the plant. It is holy basil in English and in most Indian languages it is known as Tulsi or Thulasi.

According to mythology, Pārijāta is a heavenly tree brought to earth by lord Krishna. A quarrel over it ensued between Satyabhama and Rukmini, Krishna's wives. But Krishna planted the tree in Satyabhama's courtyard in a way that when the tree flowered, the flowers fell in Rukmini's courtyard.

Lord Vishnu's heavenly throne is placed under a flowering Parijata tree, and Hanuman lives under its shade.

Another romantic story woven around the tree is about princess Pārijāta who fell in love with the sun. When he deserted her she committed suicide and a tree sprung from the ashes. Unable to stand the sight of the lover who left her, the tree flowers only at night and sheds them like tear-drops before the sun rises.

It is always said by elders that the greatest offering to Lord Krishna is a Tulsi leaf.

Flowers that are avoided during Krishna Puja include hibiscus, milkweed and angel's trumpets.

What are Names of 8 wives of lord Krishna?

Krishna was told to have 8 wives (or the Ashta-Bharyas). They are:

  1. Srimati Rukmini Devi (or "Rukmini"): Of all his wives, Krishna loved Rukmini the most. She was his favorite wife. As his first wife she was his main consort (called a Patrini).

    Originally Rukmini was the daughter of the great King Bhishmaka, Lord of Vidarbha. He in no way wanted to have Krishna marry his daughter and he was in the process of betrothing her away to Prince Shishupala of Chedi. Since Rukmini was so in love with Krishna, and he with her, Krishna stole her away on her wedding day and took her to Dwaraka where they wed.

  2. Satyabhama: The tale of his second wife begins in her previous life. She was host to much suffering in her life and after her death she sought shelter in Vishnu's "celestial palace (Vaikuntha)." While she was there she was a tireless servant for Vishnu and his care-taker. So much so that he promised she would be one of his wives in their next incarnation.

    During this life Krishna (Vishnu's reincarnation) sought to always make her happy. He did this by doing whatever she wished, irregardless of the wish. A tale is told of her infamous tantrums; while the Lord Indra came to Earth and visited Krishna he complemented Rukmini's beauty and gave her a Parijata flower. Satyabhama threw a tantrum and Krishna went into the spirit realm and brought her back an entire Parijata tree to plant.

    However, while these tantrums were not always appreciated, Krishna loved her fighting spirit. She was gifted with archery in warfar and also was very good at picking arguments which entertained Krishna immensely.

  3. Jambavati: She was actually given in marriage to Krishna by her father, bear-king Jambavan. She was a very devoted disciple of Lord Rama.
  4. Kalindi: She was the daughter of the Sun god Surya. She also was technically the keeper of the River Yamuna. When Krishna saw her, she was in deep penance. She was absolutely obsessed with marrying Vishnu and could not love another. Since he saw her devotion Krishna offered marriage.
  5. Mitravrinda: She was sister to the Kings of Avantipura.
  6. Nagnajiti: She was Princess of Kosala.
  7. Bhadra: She was actually his cousin. She chose him as her husband in a Swayamvara Ceremony.
  8. Lakshana: To win her hand in marriage, Krishna competed in an archery competition. He competed with Arjuna and Duryodhana, each who threw the match because they knew Krishna's passion for her.

Was Krishna a vegetarian?

I have the same question but so far all I have found is that he was vegetarian. Or at least people are saying that, and I don't know better.

What I am pretty sure is that Arjuna (Krishna's best friend) went out to hunt and Krishna's son (Pradyumna) hunted a deer to eat.
