krsnas ca sadrsim bharyam
samudvodhum mano dadhe
Lord Krsna knew that Rukmini possessed intelligence, auspicious bodily markings, magnanimity, beauty, proper behavior and all other good qualities. Concluding that she would be an ideal wife for Him, He made up His mind to marry her.
Just as Lord Krsna was described as sadrsam patim, an ideal husband for Rukmini, being just like her, Rukmini is described as sadrsim bharyam, an ideal wife for Sri Krsna, being just like Him. That is natural, since Srimati Rukmini is Lord Krsna’s internal potency.
