HOW MANY WIVES & CHILDREN KRISHNA HAD?
Krishna had 16, 108 wives! Through every wife, Krishna had 10 sons! Thus, totally, Krishna had 1,61,080 sons!
All the sons of Krishna were equal to Him in Strength, Beauty, Knowledge, Fame, Wealth & Sacrifice!
All 16,108 wives were considered as Rajakumaris!
Krishna expanded as 16,108 Krishnas and always stayed with every wife without leaving them!

Every wife felt, “Oh, I am Krishna’s only exclusive wife! My Krishna is always with me & He loves me much & is always obedient to me & under my control”.
But Krishna just made them happy, but he had no attachments with any of them!”
However, as Krishna is “ATHMARAM”, ie, He is self satisfied, He had neither any attachments nor any hatred with any of His wives!
Krishna showed no partiality with any of His wife, and he lived as a good grahastha & made every wife happy!
In fact, Krishna needs not even a single wife! Though they had got Krishna due to penances in previous births, they had not known the greatness of Krishna in this birth, but behaved as ordinary wives who loved Krishna not as a god, but as a king!

THE APPROACH OF THE WIVES OF KRISHNA!
Every wife of Krishna had the outstanding beauty! Every wife loved Krishna being attracted with Krishna’s Lotus eyes, Beautiful face, Long hands, Broad ears, Smart smile, Vitty/ Jocky speech, Sweet words, etc!
They decorated themselves with beautiful dress & jewels so as to attract Krisshna’s attention!
They attracted Krishna, by smiling at Him, moving the eyebrows, staring at Him! But, they were unable to kindle any excitement in the body of Krishna! Krishna had relations with them only to give children for them!
The Gopis got Sri Krishna whom could not be reached even by Brahma & higher celstials! They were that much blessed souls! They lived as husband & wife!
(HOW KRISHNA CREATED ALL THE CREATIONS AND LIVING BEINGS? KNOW HERE!)
As Krishna behaved as a model husband, the love of each girl on Krishna increased every second, that were expressed in her talks & relations! Every wife had hundreds of women servant maids!
However, When Krishna comes to her palace, the wife would come herself & welcome Krishna; She would offer Him a grand seat to sit & would clean His legs with water;
After that, the wife would offer Krishna pan (betel leaves & betel nuts with chunnam); She would then fan His body withy a colourful fan; Then, she would apply oil on his body & offer a garland around His neck; Then, she would comb the beautiful hairs of Krishna! Then she would rub the legs of Krishna to refresh Him from tiredness! Then, she would take Krishna to a seat & then pour water on His body to bath! After bathing, she would serve Krishna delicious food! Thus, every wife treated Krishna with love!

(iv) The 10 sons through Krishna’s Fourth wife Sathya, who was the daughter of the king of Nagnajith: Veera, Chandra, Ashvasena, Chitragu, Vegavan, Virusha, Aman, Sangu, Vasu, Kunti. Kunti was very mighty among these ten sons.
(v) The 10 sons through Krishna’s fifth wife Kalindhi: Shrutha, Kavi, Vrusha, Veera, Subahu, Bathra, Santhi, Dharsha, Pooranamashu & Somaha.
(vi) The 10 sons through Krishna’s Sixth wife Lakshmana, who was from the present Tamilnadu & then Madras State: Pragosha, Gathravaan, Simma, Bala, Prabala, Oorthuvaga, mahashakthi, Saga, Oja, & Abarajith.

(viii) The 10 sons through Krishna’s Eighth wife Badhra: Sankramajith, Brugathsena, Soora, Pragarana, Arijith, Jaya, Subathra, Vama, Ayu and Sathyaga.
The eldest son was through Rukmini, whose name was “Prathyumna” who married Mayavathi even while taking birth! That is, his marriage was done even before the birth even while he was in the mother’s womb!
Because, he had all the maturity & qualities of a groom even before taking birth! That is grown up very fast even inside the womb! This is also a lila of Krishna to show that he can implement anything!
Later Prathyumna was married also to Rukmavathi, who is the daughter of Rukmi, the uncle of Prathyumna! This couple gave birth to a son Anirutha.
Thus, the generation of Krishna grew in a fastest pace & its number grew to crores of people with wives, sons, grandsons, sons of grandsons, etc.
