Usually being a fallen soul I always think of what things are favorite to me (like paneer etc.). But just got a thought that it would be nice to know from devotees themselves, what are the favorite items of Lord Krishna? Like in terms of favorite food, any personality, maybe month or any other thing?
Any mentioned quotes from the scriptures or books that you know?
Thanks in advance!
Hare KRsna Prabhuji,
Few of the lord's favourites are:
1) Makhan misri - butter and sugar crystals - enough pastimes on this.
2) Colour - pitambar - yellow the colour of molten gold. That is the complexion of RadhaRani and the colour of His dhoti.
3) Chapter 11 of Gita details the lord's opulences. If you read this, you will get an idea.
4) Flower - flowers are also in 3 modes. For example, hibiscus is not offered to the lord. Bela flower/ malli poo is offered. Flowers with fragrance are what the lord likes.

Hare Krishna, thank you for this information.
Thank you for this information, Hare Krishna
Any thing that is offered with love and without having a tint of selfish motive is accepted and loved by lord. He is so merciful he accepted the banana peels offered by Vidhura's wife. He accepted even the parched rice flakes offered to him by his childhood friend Sudhama.
He also accepted the fruits which were tasted and given by Shabari...to Lord Rama.
Any humble offering with loads of love for the Lord is accepted.
It doesn't mean that Lord loves parched rice or banana peels..
Well the gopi of Vrindavan were in deep love with lord their minds were offered to Lord ..
Krishna was makhan chor, stealer of butter. Butter is from milk. Milk is fermented to get curd and the curd is churned to get butter. Life is a process of churning. Your mind is being churned by so many things, events, happenings, and instances.
Finally what comes up is butter which is the saintliness in you. And Krishna steals the butter, the saintliness. It means he loves this mind which is like butter, which is not hard. This means infinity is coming towards you, loves you so much that it steals you at any cost. He seeks you out, wherever you are.
Mind is referred to here as a milk pot and the all small curd used to ferment it is bhakti.. and churning process of the cleansing of the antarmannah. When the churning is being done.. Mind is agigated..Mind become still when the butter is formed.. Lord loves that butter which was being churning by the gopis...
Lord Krishna's every thing from head to toe is transcendental and even the brindavan sand is transcendental...What to say of the many things which so lovable by lord.
Flower Passion flower-- Krishna Kamal-- has its own significance..
The eyes in the feathers are seen on both the sides, which commonly do not occur. ... It is said Lord Krishna cleanses the holy feet of Radha with Peacock feathers, during their playtimes in Vrindavan. It is a symbol of beauty and knowledge. The eye in the feather represents the divine wisdom or the third eye of Krishna.
Peacock is one such bird which reproduces by tears.. is not involved in external beauty to be attracted to female. peacock ) male) is more beautiful with plumage then the female pehen. Peacock is represents the purity.
blue in mythology is equated to ocean, sky and vastness. Blue is also equated to consciousness because of it vast nature and properties. Krishna is always depicted as the Blue God. It means that the body is so transparent, almost as if it was not there. Whatever is infinity is represented by blue. The sky is blue, and so is the ocean. Krishna says in the Gita: "People do not know my true nature. Nobody knows."
The optimistic yellow colour transmits the wave of spirituality and enlightenment.
signifies the emptiness and hollowness .. when the mind is empty of all the junk material thought. free from all vices .. anger, lust greed, pride and envy.. the mind free of all impressions of past and present deeds....become hollow and still and it is the time when Lord Krishna loves to play on your mind. When the mind is.. full of material desires...it cannot accomodate Krishna.
Worship of Krishna is not done without Tulasi. He loves her and given her top most position.
Vaijayanthi mala represents victory. Lord loves these beads becoz they are found only in the Braj forests.
Krishna always stands with one foot firmly on the ground, the other foot crossed over, as though it is touching, but not really touching. It is elsewhere. That is called the 'tribhangy' pose, implying perfect balance.
Kadamb tree shade many pastimes of lord rasleela with gopi's have taken place as mentioned in SB.
Kartik and Purushottam months.
Everyday...should be a Krishna conscious day.
Fruits like guava, banana, apple, cucumber,etc are used on Janmashtami.
Krishna loves kadamb flowers. He sits on kadamb tree for long hours with his murli and spread his love of music around people. Apart from kadamb Jasmine, Mogra, Aprajit, Tuberose, lotus and krishna kamal.
Flowers with sugandh sweet smells are usually used for Krishna pooja.
