During his lifetime, did Lord Krishna get defeated in any war other than the one with Jarasandha?

Note that the defeats of Krishna may be either intentional or unintentional.

    Krishna fled the battle from kalayavana. hence he is affectionately called 'ranachod-rai', but there was hidden reason behind it. There is no 'defeat' for bhagavan ever, because nothing which he doesn't want ever happens.

  • Krishna is the supreme lord and no one is greater than him. If he can be defeated it is through his own will. He is defeated only by love and devotion. Just like Mother Yashoda was able to tie him up.

    No, because none of His devotees decided to fight against Him. Else He would surely had been defeated.

The assumption that he was defeated in one war itself is wrong. The conclusion of the 18 wars with Jarasandha was that Jarasandha died. So, Sri Krishna being defeated in any war doesn't even come in to question.

This has been explained here already.

  • I mean either intentionally or intentionally... I'm editing question..

  • Ok, that won't change the scope of the question. But then, what are you looking for exactly here? We are trying to find proof that he did face defeat? I don't think it exists because it didn't happen. Of course, I am curious to see if others can dig up some material, if any.
