Just before going to “List of Lord Krishna wives (Sons / children) names | Who are the 8 wife of Krishna (Ashtabharya names)? | How many wives does Krishna have? | Who are the wives of Shree Krishna? | Who is the real wife of Krishna? | Why Krishna married 16,100 wives“, let us know a brief, basic and very important information.
Before knowing the names of all the Lord Sri Krishna’s wives and children, let us first know why did Lord Sri Krishna married 16,108 wives?
How many wives does Krishna have? : Lord Sri Krishna married totally 16,108 wives. In these, first eight wives (consorts) are called as ‘Ashtabharya’, that is, 8 divine consorts of Lord Sri Krishna.
Who is the real wife of Krishna? : As per Srimad Bhagavatam and Mahabharata, Lord Sri Krishna has 16,108 wives. In that the two were main wives, that is, Sri Rukmini Devi and Sri Satyabhama Devi.
Why Krishna married 16,100 wives : The first 8 wives are called ‘ashta bharya’ (eight divine wives).
In these 8 wives, first two, that is, Sri Rukmini Devi and Sri Satyabhama Devi are avatars of Goddess Sri Lakshmi Devi.
Here both Sri Rukmini Devi and Sri Satyabhama Devi are one and the same, but in two bodies. Sri Rukmini Devi is the normal avatar of Goddess Sri Lakshmi Devi.
Whereas Sri Satyabhama Devi is the ‘avesha’ avatar of Goddess Sri Lakshmi Devi. But both are one and the same.
But here, we should always remember that both are one and the same.
Then we may think, why two avatars was required?
This is because, to teach lessons to the common people, Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi Devi had taken two avatars as per the instructions of Bhagavan Lord Sri Krishna.
The other 6 wives had also done great tapas (penance) in their earlier lives and thus they had got the great divine chance to marry Bhagavan Lord Sri Krishna.
In that, 3rd most important wife of Bhagavan Lord Sri Krishna is Sri Jambavati Devi. Sri Jambavati Devi is an avatar of Sri Tulasi Devi.
Other most important wives names, that is, 4rd, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th wives’ names are given below.
Here we need to have one very important clarification. What is that?
Why did Lord Sri Krishna married other 16,100 women (Kumaris) (divine girls)?
For this, let us take few examples:
When we go Tirupati, most of the people will definitely have one or more wishes. These people will go to Tirupati because they want to fulfill, their wishes.
Few may want to have child, few may want to have house, few may want to study more, few may want to buy car, few want to improve their health, etc. etc. etc.
There is no limit to the common man’s wishes. Thus each and everyone will go to Tirupati to fulfill his / her wish(es).
Similarly all these 16,100 had done great tapas (penance) in their earlier lives. All these Kumaris (divine girls) wish was to marry Lord Sri Vishnu.
All these Kumaris had done great tapas (penance) for 1,000s of years. Thus to fulfill the wish of these Kumaris (divine girls), Bhagavan Lord Sri Vishnu took birth as Bhagavan Sri Krishna and thus fulfilled these Kumaris (divine girls) wishes.
This is the real story as per Mahabharata and Srimad Bhagavata Purana (Sri Vishnu Purana).
Now let us all know the names and other details of the wives of Lord Sri Krishna:
List of Lord Krishna wives names (Ashtabharya names) are as given below:
1. Sri Rukmini Devi | 2. Sri Satyabhama Devi | 3. Sri Jambavati Devi | 4. Sri Nagnajiti Devi (Sri Neela Devi) | 5. Sri Kalindi Devi | 6. Sri Mitravinda Devi | 7. Sri Bhadra Devi | 8. Sri Lakshana Devi (Sri Lakshmana Devi) and
16,100 more wives. (in earlier life they were the children of Lord Sri Agni Deva – they are same ladies which Lord Sri Krishna saves from the clutches of the demon Narakasura)
Thus making a total of 16,108 wives. First 8 wives are called Ashtabharya or Pattadarani of Lord Sri Krishna Paramatma.
Here Ashtabharya = Ashta + Bharya = 8 + Divine wives. Each of these 16,108 wives had 10 male children and one female child.
Thus making a total children of 16,108 * 10 = 1,61,080 (male) and 16,108 * 1 = 16,108 (female).
List of Lord Krishna sons names are as given below:
Lord Krishna and Sri Rukmini Devi children names: Pradyumna, Charudeshna, Charuchandra, Sudeshna, Charudeha (means which has a strong and fit body), Sucharu, Charugupta, Bhadracharu, Vicharu and Charu.
Lord Krishna and Sri Satyabhama Devi children names: Bhanu, Subhanu, Svarabhanu, Prabhanu, Bhanumana, Chandrabhanu, Brihadhbhanu, Atibhanu, Sribhanu and Pratibhanu.
Lord Krishna and Sri Jambavati Devi children names: Samba (the main person because of whom the Yadava lineage got destroyed), Sumitra, Purujita, Satajita, Sahasrajita, Vijaya, Chitraketu, Vaasumana, Dravida, and Kratu.
Lord Krishna and Sri Nagnajiti Devi children names: Veera, Chandra, Ashvasena, Chitraguva, Vegavaana, Vrisha, Ama, Shanku, Vaasu and Kunti.
Lord Krishna and Sri Kalindi Devi children names: Shruta, Kaavi, Vrusha, Veera, Subhahu, Bhadra, Shanthi, Darsha, Purnamaasa, and Somaka.
Lord Krishna and Sri Mitravinda Devi children names: Vrika, Harsha, Anila, Gridhra, Vardhana, Unnada, Mamaamsa, Pavana, Vaahi and Kshudhhi.
Lord Krishna and Sri Bhadra Devi children names: Sangramajita, Brihatsena, Sura, Praharana, Arijita, Jaya, Subhadhra, Vama, Ayura, and Satyaka.
Lord Krishna and Sri Lakshana (Lakshmana) Devi children names: Praghosha, Gaatravana, Simha, Balaa, Prabala, Urdhaga, Mahashakthi, Saaha, Ojha, and Aparajita.
Along with these sons, all the other wives (16,100) had 11 children each (10 male children and 1 female child).
Only Lord Sri Krishna (Vishnu) can have these many wives and children.
Because Lord Sri Krishna (Vishnu) had given his promise to each of the above wives in their earlier lives’ like this:
“In the Dvapara Yuga, I (Lord Sri Vishnu) will be take avatar as Lord Sri Krishna and will marry all of you and will keep all you (wives) happy and cheerful throughout your whole life.”
Lord Sri Krishna kept his promise and all his wives were always happy, were beautiful through out their lives as they had married to the Svayam (directly) Bhagavan Lord Sri Krishna.
Through out their life, these wives until their last day on earth all were looking as young as 16 years old only.
This was because, as all of them were having the kripakattaksha (divine blessings) of Paramatma Lord Sri Krishna (Vishnu).
They never fought with each other, there was never a single misunderstanding among these wives.
In today’s world this is not at all possible, as we are only mere humans. Beyond this, nobody should think of marrying more than once in the life term in this Kali Yuga.
We should not think that Lord Sri Krishna has married so many times, why shouldn’t we have more than one spouse or affairs.
No, this is completely restricted according to our Shastras (Divine Hindu books / texts).
Also we should remember that marriage is done only once in the life and no remarriage should be done or no divorce should happen as per Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism). Whatever the situation is, we have to solve the problem.
Lord Sri Krishna got married with so many wives, because he is the ultimate enjoyer (atma kaama), he is the ultimate of anything and everything.
Lord Sri Krishna has killed so many rakshanas (demons), can we kill such types of rakshasas (demons)? Can we even think of that? No right.
Lord Sri Krishna has drunk the milk of rakshasi (demoness) Putana, can we imagine drinking the milk of a rakshasi (demoness)? No right.
Lord Sri Krishna has killed Kamsa, can we do that? No right.
Lord Sri Krishna has danced on the big 1000 headed serpent called Kalinga (Kaliya) Sarpa, can we do that? No right.
Lord Sri Krishna has saved millions of life in Mathura, Vrindavana, Dwaraka, etc., can we do that? No right.
Lord Sri Krishna has saved the Maana (honour) of the patirvata Draupadi Devi, can we do that? No right.
Lord Sri Krishna has done so many millions and billions of such Kaaryas (works), can we do that? No right.
Similarly we shouldn’t be thinking of having more than one spouse or an extra affairs or divorcing.
Lord Sri Krishna has never left any of his wives. Lord Sri Krishna is the Supreme, we are mere Humans. Let him be the Bhagavan (God) and let us be humans that’s all.
Let us always keep on chanting Lord Sri Krishna (Vishnu) name(s), that’s the only thing we can do.
