The birth anniversary of Shri Krishna is celebrated worldwide as Janmashtami. The more people know about Shri Krishna, the less. Shri Krishna is a wonderful storehouse of knowledge. Along with Shri Krishna, there are many deep secrets in itself. In this way, let us tell you about the truth of 16108 wives of Shri Krishna.
It is said about Lord Krishna that Shri Krishna had 16108 wives. But this is not true. It is mentioned in the Puranas that besides Krishna's Rukmini, there were 16107 wives. But it is important to know about the mythology behind it.
It is written in the Puranas that once the demon Bhumasura wanted to sacrifice 16 thousand girls to become immortal. The demon had taken these girls captive and then Shri Krishna freed these girls from the demon and sent them safely to their home. However, when the girls returned home, their families did not adopt them due to the character doubt. During this time Shri Krishna appears in 16 thousand forms and he marries all the girls. However, Krishna never accepted girls as his wife. Apart from these, some love marriages of Shri Krishna also took place.
In Dwaparyug, when Sri Krishna reached Indraprastha to meet the Pandavas, he was welcomed by the five Pandavas and Kunti. After this, Lord Krishna left for Van Vihar with Arjun one day. During this period, the sun daughter Kalindi was meditating to get Krishna as her husband, Shri Krishna married Kalindi while wishing for Kalindi.
