Rukmini Vivah – Rukmini Haran Festival

Rukmini Vivah, also known as Rukmini Haran, is the festival dedicated to the marriage of Lord Krishna and Rukmini Devi which is  observed during the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) in Jyeshta month (May – June).

According to Legend, Rukmini Devi is believed to be an avatar (incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi). Rukmini was in love with Lord Krishna but her brother, Rukmi, who was a close associate of Kamsa, objected to the relationship. Rukmi decided give Rukmini in marriage to Shishupala.

Rukmini sends a messenger to Krishna stating that her marriage has been fixed and he should come and rescue her. Lord Krishna comes and rescues Rukmini; while escaping with Rukmini, Krishna engages in a battle with Rukmi and defeats him. The festival is celebrated to commemorate this event.
