Mohini Rachitha Krishna Stotram
Mohini Rachitha Krishna Stotram
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
[The stotra in Sanskrit is available at: sanskritdocuments.org/all_pdf/mohinikrishnastotra.pdf. It is supposed to have been written by Mohini. Mohini is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu on two occasions. The first one was to prevent the nectar got from churning the ocean falling in the hands of Asuras. He also took this incarnation to prevent Basmasura hurting Lord Shiva. No where in the stotra Lord Krishna is mentioned directly. The peculiarity of this stotra is that it is the only one that is known to me which helps a man get married/Get married to his beloved.]
