Hare Krishna.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Vaishnavas. Dandvat Pranam.

I wanted to know whether in Sruti Vedas(Rig, Sam, Yajur) is there mentioning of Lords one of the most potent name "Krishna" and also name such as "Vaikuntha and Goloka Vrindavana".

    om tad vishno paramam padagm

    sada pashyanti surayah

    diviva cakshur-atatam

    tad vipraso vipanyavo jagrivagm sa

    samindhate vishnor yat paramam padam


    “Just as the sun’s rays in the heavens are extended to the mundane organ of light, so do the godly souls always look to the abode of Lord Vishnu, which is supreme. Inasmuch as such twice-born men are worthy of praise and are awake to the spiritual stratum, they are able to exhibit the Supreme Abode, which is Lord Vishnu’s.”-Rg Veda (1.22.20)

    Hare Krishna!!! Here are few extracts from Katha-upanishad, that refer to Vishnu's abode-

    svarge loke na bhayam kincanasti

    na tatra tvam na jaraya bibheti

    ubhe tirtvashanaya pipase

    sokatigo modate svarga-loke



    (Naciketa said:) In the abode of Lord Vishnu, you do not dwell there, nor is there any anxiety, nor fear of old age and death. Having transcended both hunger and thirst – being free from lamentation – one enjoys spiritual bliss in that divine region.



    The Svarga referred to in this verse can only mean the abode of Lord Vishnu, since the Svarga in the mundane universe is not free from the above-mentioned anomalies, viz. Anxiety, death etc.


    pra te bravimi tad u me nibodha

    svargyam agnim naciketah prajanan

    ananta-lokaptim atho pratishtham

    viddhi tvam etan nihitam guhayam



    (Yama said:) O Naciketa, I am conversant with the sacred fire that can award salvation, and will describe Him to you. Know Him to be the means to enter the unlimited abode of Vishnu, the support of the universe, and He who resides in the hearts of all creatures.



    Madhvacarya states that the Agni mentioned in this verse is Lord Hari, who resides in the sacred fire. Lord Vishnu is ‘Ananta Lokaptim’ – the means of attaining the unlimited, spiritual kingdom – and none other.

    yas tu avijnanavan bhavati

    samanskah sada shucih

    sa tu tat-padam apnoti

    yasmad bhuyo na jayate



    But one who possesses transcendental knowledge, who is equipoised, and is always pure at heart, verily, he attains the abode of Lord Vishnu, from whence he never returns.

    vijnana-sarathir yas tu

    manah pragrahavan narah

    so’dhvanah param apnoti

    tad-vishnoh paramam padam



    One who has realised knowledge of the Absolute as his charioteer and who takes his mind in rein, reaches the limit of the road (of material bondage) and attains the Supreme Destination, the abode of Lord Vishnu, the Personality of Godhead.
