How can Krishna marry 16000 wives?
« on: March 23, 2009, 10:48:23 AM »
We see in Bhagavatam that Krishna married 16,000 wives (Vallabacharya corrects the score as 16,110!) and also enjoyed
Gopis some of whom were other men's wives.  The qualified non-
dualism has no answer for this.  Advaita says that you are the Self.
Every being is the Self.  Then it is the Self touching the Self or
marrying the Self, the One without a second.  You are travelling
in a bus.  If you touch a woman's breast sitting nearby, you will
be lynched.  Suppose I touch my own chest, who will ask me or
doubt me.  This is the answer for Krishna marrying 16000 wives.
Saint Manikkavachagar says in Tiruvachakam, Tiru Padai Atchi:

I shall not be able to see His eyes and rejoice!
I shall be able to see the beautiful eyes of women and rejoice!
I shall not be able to apply Holy Ashes on my forehead!
I shall dance with women with breasts like champagne glases!

How is it?

Because I am the Self, I am Sivam.  As Sivam, what if, if I do not
wear holy ashes on my forehad?  As Sivam, how I can see my eyes
and rejoice?  As Sivam, I can see beautiful eyes of women and
rejoice, because there is no one other than Me.   So is my dance with
women with breasts like champagne glasses!

This Sivanubhuti.

Arunachala Siva.
