|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 58: Kṛṣṇa Marries Five Princesses|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.58.20
ahaḿ devasya savitur
duhitā patim icchatī
viṣṇuḿ vareṇyaḿ vara-daḿ
tapaḥ paramam āsthitaḥ
śrī-kālindī uvāca — Śrī Kālindī said; aham — I; devasya — of the demigod; savituḥ — Savitā (the sun-god); duhitā — the daughter; patim — as my husband; icchatī — desiring; viṣṇum — Lord Viṣṇu; vareṇyam — the most choice; vara-dam — bestower of one's choice; tapaḥ — in austerities; paramam — extreme; āsthitaḥ — engaged.
Śrī Kālindī said: I am the daughter of the sun-god. I desire to get as my husband the most excellent and munificent Lord Viṣṇu, and to that end I am performing severe penances.
As Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī points out, Śrīmatī Kālindī correctly understood that Lord Viṣṇu, being the source of all benedictions, is the supreme husband and can thus fulfill all the desires of His wife.
