Is it true that Krishna is the only avatar who was married to more than one woman?
Chapter 10 mentions the marriage of Padmavati and Kalki.
After greeting Lord Kalki, the king worshiped Him with great respect and then brought Him to his palace, which had decorated pillars, gates, and residential quarters He then gave his daughter's hand in charity to the Lord
Thus King Brhadratha had his daughter, Padmavati, whose eyes were like lotus petals, who had the fragrance of a lotus, and who was born at a place where many lotuses grew, married to the Lord, who possesses a lotus like navel
Chapter 24 mentions marriage of Ramaa and Kalki.
- Thereafter, King Sasidhvaja summoned his sons from the battlefield and, as desired by his wife, handed over his daughter, Rama, to Lord Kalki in marriage.
Chapter 33 of Kalki Purana describes Kalki pastime with His consorts:
Thus, the village of Sambhala, which was profusely decorated with blooming flowers, pious trees, forests, and gardens, became a holy place that granted liberation from material existence.
The master of the universe, Lord Kalki, who was especially pleasing to the eyes and minds of women, happily resided with PadmavatI and Rama in the village of Sambhala.
to 8. The Lord would mount His celestial chariot, which had been given to Him by Indra, and periodically visit holy rivers, mountains, groves, and islands. In this way, He would enjoy pleasure pastimes with PadmavatI and Rama. He thus appeared to be a most perfect, passionate male, afflicted by transcendental lust. Indeed, the Lord of Ramaa became so absorbed in thought of His consorts that He completely forgot whether it was day or night.
The Destroyer has already pointed out that the Kalki Avataar will have two wives.
And so Kalki is THE ONLY AVATAR in the Dasa-avatars Who would have two wives.
This is because, Sri Krishna is NOT counted in the Dasa-Avatars. The Dasa-Avatars are -Matya, Kurma, Varaha, Nrisimha,Vamana, Parasurama, Rama, Balarama, Buddha and Kalki.(Reference : Dasavatar-stotra by Jaydev).
Krishna is 'Bhagavan Svayam'. He is Avatari and Avatars are His amsas: "ete chamshakalaah pumsah krishnastu bhagavan svayam".(Srimad-Bhagavatam 1/3/28)
So Jaydeva writes: 'Keshava drita Dasavidha rupa, Jaya Jagadisha Hare'.
Including Sri Krishna in the Ten Avatars is a misconception as the most authentic list of Dasavatar comes from Jayadev.
