SB 1.10 - Nārada's constant remembrance of the Lord

Ladies like Rukmiṇī, Satyabhāma and Jāmbavatī were forcibly taken away by the Lord from their svayaṁvara ceremonies after He defeated many powerful kings headed by Śiśupāla. And other ladies were also taken away by Him after He killed Bhaumāsura and thousands of his assistants. All these ladies are glorious. Rukmiṇī was the daughter of the king of Vidarbha, who wanted to give her to Kṛṣṇa, but her brother wished she marry Śiśupāla. Kṛṣṇa defeated Śiśupāla and carried Rukmiṇī away. Kṛṣṇa also married the 16,100 girls kept in captive by Bhaumāsura. The girls prayed piteously to the Lord who released them all after killing the demon. The Lord accepted their prayers and married them all. Kṛṣṇa never left them alone at home and always pleased them with valuable presentations. Even though these girls were without purity, by engagement in the service of the Lord all their designative disqualifications were removed and they became eligible to associate with the Lord. Later on Nārada would become amazed after personally witnessing the Lord’s dealings with the queens. Nārada had asked Kṛṣṇa to favor him so that he could constantly think of the Lord as he traveled about. And after seeing the Lord’s amazing display of potency with His queens, Nārada had enough content to constantly remember Kṛṣṇa.
