SB 10.52.41svo bhavini tvam ajitodvahane vidarbhan
 guptah sametya prtana-patibhih paritah
nirmathya caidya-magadhendra-balam prasahya
 mam raksasena vidhinodvaha virya-sulkam


Translation:
O unconquerable one, tomorrow when my marriage ceremony is about to begin, You should arrive unseen in Vidarbha and surround Yourself with the leaders of Your army. Then crush the forces of Caidya and Magadhendra and marry me in the Raksasa style, winning me with Your valor.

Purport:
As Srila Prabhupada points out in Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Rukmini, being born of royal blood, certainly had a brilliant grasp of political affairs. She advised Sri Krsna to enter the city alone and unnoticed and then surround Himself with His military commanders so He could do what was needed. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti compares the coming fight to the Lord’s churning of the ocean to extract the goddess Laksmi. Gorgeous Rukmini, the goddess of fortune, would be gained in the coming turbulence.
