King Pariksit said: The Supreme Lord married Rukmini, the beautiful-faced daughter of Bhismaka, in the Raksasa style — or so I have heard.
Srila Sridhara Svami quotes the following smrti statement: raksaso yuddha-haranat. “A Raksasa marriage takes place when the bride is stolen from one’s rival suitors by force.” Similarly, Sukadeva Gosvami himself has already said, rajñah pramathya: Krsna had to beat down opposing kings to take Rukmini.
