Marriage of Bhagavan Sri Krishna Paramaatma with Maata Rukmini Devi

Marriage of Bhagavan Sri Krishna Paramaatma with Maata Rukmini Devi

Krishna making apaharanam of Rukmini. Behind Balaraama & many Yadavas fighting with Rukmi's friends

Krishna punishing Rukmi
Raaja Bhishmaka was the raaja of the raajyam Kundina. Bhishmaka had two santaanam, one putra named Rukmi and one putri named Rukmini. Both Krishna and Rukmini were liking each other and they wanted to make vivaaham. But Rukmini's brother Rukmi didn't like Krishna, and thus he was a wall between Krishna and Rukmini. Bhishmaka was also a mitra of Raaja Jaraasandha. So Bhishmaka was also supporting Rukmi and both Bhishmaka and Rukmi decided to make vivaaham of Rukmini with Shishupaala, and also all the arrangements for the vivaaham was also taking place. All the mitras of Jaraasandha went to Kundina to witness the vivaaham of Rukmini and Shishipaala. Meanwhile, even many of the Yadavas also went to Kundina including Krishna and Balaraama. But one day before the vivaaham, Krishna made apaharan of the Rukmini.

Soon after, many raajas like Poundarika, Dantavakra, Viduratha, Shishupaala, Jaraasandha and Shalva all attacked the Yadavas so that they can make hatyam of the Krishna. But who can touch Krishna. On the other hand Balaraama and other Yadavas defeated all these raajas in no time.

While Rukmi, made sankalpam that he won't enter the Kundina, until he makes hatyam of the Krishna. He followed Krishna with many ashwas, gajas, rathams, sainikaas, but he was not even able to touch Krishna. Krishna easily defeated Rukmi and his sahapaatis. After Rukmi got defeated by Krishna, Rukmi was enraged with Krishna and Rukmi told to his sodari Rukmini, that she won't be able to stay with Krishna for a long time. Hearing these words Krishna was wanting to make hatyam of Rukmi, but Rukmini requested Krishna that she is having only one brother and she don't want to see his brother been killed. So Krishna cut off half portion of the head's hair and half of the moustache of the Rukmi and sent Rukmi with humiliation. Doing thus means almost killing somebody. 

Thus Rukmi was not able to go to Kundina, as he had taken sankalpam of not entering Kundina without making hatyam of Krishna. For this Rukmi built a new pradesham known as Bhojataka and started to live in this place.

Krishna, than later brought Rukmini to Dwaraka and got married with her. They had a putra called Pradyumnya and another nine putras and one putri.
The names of the other nine putras of Rukmini and Krishna are Charudeshna, Sudesna, Charudeha, Sucharu, Charugupta, Bhadracharu, Charuchandra, Vicharu and Charu. The name of the daughter was Charumati.

PS: Here it should be noted that without the sankalpam of Bhagavan, nothing can happen. How much ever we humans may try, but if Bhagavan doesn't wishes, than all of our prayatnas are in vain. But if we are doing something good than we should try our best, the phalas and pratiphalas are left to him.

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children

Kashyapa married thirteen of Daksha’s daughters. Their names were Aditi, Diti, Danu, Arishta, Surasa, Khasa, Surabhi, Vinata, Tamra, Krodhavasha, Ida, Kadru and Muni.

Aditi’s sons were the twelve gods known as the adityas. Their names were Vishnu, Shakra, Aryama, Dhata, Vidhata, Tvashta, Pusha, Vivasvana, Savita, Mitravaruna, Amsha and Bhaga.

Diti’s sons were the daityas (demons). They were named Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakshipu, and amongst their descendants were several other powerful daityas like Vali and Vanasura. Diti also had a daughter named Simhika who was married to a danava (demon) named Viprachitti. Their offsprings were terrible demons like Vatapi, Namuchi, Ilvala, Maricha and the nivatakavachas.

The hundred sons of Danu came to be known as danavas. The danavas were thus cousins to the daityas and also to the adityas. In the danava line were born demons like the poulamas and kalakeyas.

Arishta’s sons were the gandharvas (singers of h…

Bhakthi Story: Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

We all know that Ekalavya had made the clay statue of the Guru Dronacharya and he was practicing the Dhanur Vidya and was also had become master in some of the Dhanur Vidyas. 
After some time, Dronacharya comes to know about the Ekalavya practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping a statue of himself. Once Dronacharya meets Ekalavya and asks him "why are you practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping my statue in front" and for this Ekalavya replies that "Guru Deva I have accepted you as my Guru and I have been practicing Dhanur Vidya since than". 
Than Dronacharya after few days again meet Ekalavya and asks him right hand's Thumb finger as the Guru dakshina. Ekalavya without any hesitation cuts off his finger to give his Thumb as the Guru dakshina to his Guru Dronacharya. 
We should think why Guru Dronacharya did like this?. Was Guru Dronacharya was jealous of Ekalavya that one day Ekalavya will become a much better Dhanur Vidyashali than the Nara…

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Krishna had more than one lakh and eighty thousand sons. But the best of them was Pradyumna and Pradyumna’s son was Aniruddha. 
Vali’s son was Vanasura and Vanasura’s daughter was Usha. Usha once met Parvati and Shiva. She asked Parvati who her husband would be. Parvati replied that in the month of Vaishakha a person would appear in Usha’s dreams. And this person would be her husband.

As promised by Parvati, Usha did see a person in her dreams. But she did not know how this person was. She told her friend Chitraleka about this. Chitralekha thought that the only way to find out was to show Usha the protraits of various important personages amongst the devas, gandharvas and asuras. But the required person could not be identified from these portraits. Usha was then shown the portraits of humans and immediately she identified Aniruddha."

Many years ago, Vanasura had prayed to Mahadeva," he had said,…
