Legend of Birth and Marriage

 

Rukmini was born to a king named Bhishmaka. As she grew younger, she turned out to be very beautiful and virtuous. She slowly started falling in love with Krishna as she heard stories about him. She used to ask her maidens to tell her about Krishna’s virtues, charm and prowess.

 

Rukmi was the brother of Rukmini and was friend with Krishna’s enemy Jarasandha. The name Jarasandha is a Sanskrit word which translates to “the one who is joined by the demonessJara”. He was the king of Magadha and a worshipper of Shiva. However, due to his bitter rivalry with the followers of Krishna, he is considered as a negative character. He didn’t want his sister to marry Krishna and thus fixed her marriage with one his friends, Shishupala, who was also an ally to Jarasandha. After knowing about this plotting, Rukmini requested a friend to deliver a letter to Krishna, asking him to abduct her and elope. The plan was to take Rukmini during her visits to the temple and avoid any physical battle as she didn’t want her relatives to die. As soon as Krishna read the letter, he came to take Rukmini with him. 

 

He picked her up from the temple as planned, but Rukmi soon reached out to Krishna and tried to kill him. His arrow couldn’t even touch Krishna. Krishna became furious and wanted to kill him but at the request of Rukmini, Rukmi was left alive. He was made bald though as the sign of his defeat. Since then Rukmi is considered as the God of shame and defeat.

 

Krishna took Rukmini to his hometowm, Dwarka where they got married with proper pomp and show.
