raivato raivatim sutam
brahmana coditah pradad
As ordered by Lord Brahma, Raivata, the opulent ruler of Anarta, gave Lord Balarama his daughter Raivati in marriage. This has already been discussed.
The topic of Lord Krsna’s marriage to Rukmini will now be discussed. By way of introduction, a brief mention is made of His brother Baladeva’s marriage. This marriage was alluded to in the Ninth Canto of the Bhagavatam, Third Chapter, texts 33-36.
