Rukamani prominent queen of Krishna

Rukmani is the first and most prominent queen of the Lord Krishna the king of Dwarka.Rukmani is considered as the incarnation of goddess Lakshmi who wanted to marry and stay with her husband Lord Vishnu on earth. It is believed that Rukmani was the only woman who was just as beautiful and virtuous as Radha. This story depicts how Lord Krishna heroically abducted her and eloped with her to prevent an unwanted marriage at her request and saved her from an evil Shishupal.

Rukmini was the daughter of Bhishmaka, the King of Vidarbha. She secretly developed the love for Lord Krishna in her heart. Her brother Rukmi was a friend of Jarasandha, who was an enemy of Krishna. Rukmi wanted Rukmani to marry his friend Shishupala the crown prince of Chedi and also a friend of Jarasandha and was against Krishna. Rukmi arranged for Rukmini's wedding by convincing his father to marry her with Shishupala, who actually wanted Rukmini to marry Krishna. When Rukmini heard this news she wrote a letter to Lord Krishna about her love for him and her brother's plans and sent it through a Brahmana. She asked Lord Krishna to kidnap her on her way to temple or back. Lord Krishna after reading the letter at once left for Vidarbha along with his brother Balarama.

Meanwhile, Shishupala was over the moon at the news from Rukmi that he could simply go to Kundina (present day Koundanyapur) Amravati district and claim Rukmini. Jarasandha felt something wrong and doubt that Krishna might interrupt the wedding thus sent all his vassals and allies along with him. And other hand when Bhishmaka heard about Krishna's arrival he joyfully set up a furnished mansion for Krishna to take rest on his way.

Rukmini went to the Parvati temple but could not see Krishna anywhere, she prayed to goddess Parvati that Krishna takes her away. Rukmini when she stepped out of the temple she saw Krishna waiting for her, he soon swept her into his chariot with him. They both started to ride off when Shishupala noticed them and instantly Jarasandha's forces started chasing them. Balarama tried to stop and occupied most of them but Rukmi almost caught Krishna.

Lord Krishna and Rukmi fought with the predictable result of Krishna's victory. When Krishna was about to kill him, Rukmini fell at the feet of Krishna and begged to spare her brother's life. Lord Krishna generously agreed but as punishment, shaved Rukmi's head and let him go free. There was no greater shame for a warrior than a visible sign of defeat.

Lord Krishna came to the village of Madhavpur Ghed with Rukmini and got married to her at this very place. In the memory of that event now there is a temple built for Lord Madhavrai. In memory of this marriage a celebration is held at Madhavpur every year. Later in Dwaraka, Lord Krishna was married to Rukmini with big ceremony.
