The story of Rukmini and Krishna is found in the Mahapurana Srimad Bhagavatham. Rukmini is a Vidarbha Princess. Her father Bhishmaka was never tired of listening to Narada’s descriptions of Lord Krishna. He was convinced that He was the perfect husband for his daughter, but his son Rukmi treated the “cowherd” with contempt and did his best to prevent the marriage. “Kalyana Rukmini” is the story of Rukmini’s single- minded devotion to Krishna which finally united them.
