578) Whether I know, nothing is difficult for Krishna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————- But now things have changed. Nobody cares whether the daughter is married or not. But that is not good. Another difficulty is that everywhere, all over the world, the female population is greater than, on the average, than male population. So if each and every woman has to be married, then there is no sufficient number of male population. Therefore, according to Vedic rituals, those who are higher caste, just like the ksatriyas or the brahmanas, especially, others also, polygamy is allowed. Polygamy is allowed. Just like our most exalted personality, Krsna, He has married sixteen thousand wives. He is God. (laughter) Unless you have got so many wives, how you can be God? Not that sixteen thousand wives, one wife is to be seen one day, so that the turn will come after sixteen thousand days. No. That is God. He expanded Himself into sixteen thousand forms also, so that every wife was happy to live with the husband. And for Krsna, why sixteen thousand? If He marries sixteen millions, still, it is not sufficient. Because in the Bhagavad-gita it is said, isvarah sarva-bhutanam hrd-dese ‘rjuna tisthati: [Bg. 18.61] “The Supreme Lord is situated in the heart of all living entities.” So all living entities, if Krsna can expand Himself to live in the heart of all living entities, and from the heart He comes out to become some woman’s husband, is it very difficult for Krsna? That is not difficult. ——-
