Why did Lord Kr’shn’ marry 16,100
I have faced so many questions on the subject on Pakistan Forum.
On Hindu Forum, the questions are not addressed to me directly.
Yet, they are there too.
I had promised to answer the question, as soon as I get proper time for it.
Unfortunately, other more important questions did not allow me to do it till now.
Now, let’s analyze the truth.
Shrimad Bhaagvat Mahapuraan’am, Skandh/volume 10: Chapter 59/ shlok 32 tells us:
‘Iti Bhoomyarthito vaagbhirbhagvaan bhaktinamrayaa,
datvaabhayam Bhaumgr’ham praavishatsakalarddhimat.’
‘When Bhoomi requested so, with the words with polite devotion; Lord gave her ‘DON’T FEAR’-ASSURANCE. He, master of all wealths and glamor, entered the palace of Bhaum.’
Next shlok states:
‘Tatr raajany’kanyaanaam shatsahasraadhikaayutam,
Bhaumhr’taanaam vikramy’ raajabhyo dadr’she Harih.’
‘There, the Lord saw more than 16000 daughters of kings.’
THEY WERE KIDNAPPED BY BHAUM.’
-Shrimad Bhaagvat Mahapuraan’am: Skandh/volume 10: Chapter 59/ shlok 33
The critics try their best to hide this utmost important truth, that they were KIDNAPPED SHEIKHZADIS.
They were not free women.
How many great persons of the critics can marry such kidnapped girls?
They tell the story as if it was the sexual pleasure Lord Kr’shn were after.
If the critics are true, then WHY THE KIDNAPPED ONES?
WHY NOT VIRGINS?
WHY NOT FREE BEAUTIES?
WHY THE USED ONES BY BHAUMASUR?
Vishnu Puran’ states:
‘Devsiddhaasuraadeenaam nr’paanaam ch’, Janaardan!
hr’tvaa hi so’surah kanyaa rurodh nijmandire.’
‘The wicked had KIDNAPPED the daughters of Kings of devs, siddhs, mlechchhs/Arabs etc. and had stopped them in his own palace.’
-Vishnu Puran: 5/29/9
‘IN HIS OWN PALACE’ ‘NIJMANIRE’, not in the prison.
Naturally, he was not treating them as his sisters/daughters.
Even the worst critics can understand that none is so foolish as to kidnap the critics’ daughters/sisters, put them in his own home and NOT BED WITH THEM.
So, the unfortunate girls were bedded with that wicked, named Bhaumaasur.
Gentlemen! How many of you can marry with such unfortunate girls?
Criticism is easy, but WHERE’S YOUR OWN HUMANITY?
What else should, in your bright opinion, our Lord have done?
LET THEM SUICIDE?
LET THEM DIE?
Would then he had done right?
Vishn’u Puran‘ further states:
‘Kanyaapure s’ kanyaanaam shodashaatuly’vikramah,
shataadhikaani dadr’she sahasraani, mahaamate!’
‘In the bedroom part, Wise one! that unique vigorous saw 16,100 young women.’
-Vishn’u Puran’: 5/29/31
Shrimad Bhaagvat Mahapuraan’am, Skandh/volume 10: Chapter 59/ shlok 34 states further:
‘Tam pravishtam striyo veexy’ narvaryam vimohitaah,
mansaa vavrire’bheeshtam patim daivopsaaditam.’
‘The women saw the best man, entering. The unfortunate kidnapped ones, madly influenced, analyzing, selected him, wanted husband, mentally.’
‘Bhooyaatpatirayam mahyam, Dhaataa! tadanumodataam,
iti sarvaah pr’thakKr’shne bhaaven hr’dayam dadhuh.’
‘God! let this man be my husband.
All of them, separately, established this emotion in the heart.’
-Shrimad Bhaagvat Mahapuraan’am: Skandh/volume 10: Chapter 59/ shlok 35
So, the truth is that Lord Kr’shn’ was not mad at their beauty, and decided to marry them.
IT WAS THE OTHER WAY ROUND.
The young women were mad at our Lord’s manly vigor.
It were they who decided and pleaded him to be their husband.
So, if the worst critics want to close their eyes to the SOCIAL ANGLE of the problem, and insist shamelessly on the SEX ANGLE alone;
even then the sex wishes go to the account of the unfortunate, kidnapped, young Sheikhzadis, not to Lord Kr’shn‘.
HE OBLIGED THEM, not wooed them.
