As already mentioned, Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a married 16,108 wives, and each of them had ten sons. Therefore 16,108 × 10 = 161,080 sons. They all grew up, and each of them had as many sons as their father, and the whole aggregate was something near 1,610,800 family members of the Lord. The Lord is the father of all living beings, who are countless in number; therefore only a few of them are called to associate with the Lord in His transcendental pastimes as the Lord of DvÄrakÄ on this earth. It is not astonishing that the Lord maintained a visible family consisting of so many members. It is better to refrain from comparing the Lordâs position to ours, and it becomes a simple truth as soon as we understand at least a partial calculation of the Lordâs transcendental position. King Yudhiá¹£á¹hira, while inquiring about the Lordâs sons and grandsons at DvÄrakÄ, mentioned only the chieftains amongst them, for it was impossible for him to remember all the names of the Lordâs family members.
