वृत: स्वयंवरे साक्षादनङ्गोऽङ्गयुतस्तया ।
राज्ञ: समेतान् निर्जित्य जहारैकरथो युधि ॥ २२ ॥
vṛtaḥ svayaṁvare sākṣād
anaṇgo ’ṇga-yutas tayā
rājñaḥ sametān nirjitya
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; vṛtaḥ — chosen; svayaṁvare — in her svayaṁvara ceremony; sākṣāt — manifest; anaṅgaḥ — Cupid; aṅga-yataḥ — incarnate; tayā — by her; rājñaḥ — the kings; sametān — assembled; nirjitya — defeating; jahāra — He took her away; eka-rathaḥ — having only one chariot; yudhi — in battle.
Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: At her svayaṁvara ceremony, Rukmavatī herself chose Pradyumna, who was the re-embodiment of Cupid. Then, although He fought alone on a single chariot, Pradyumna defeated the assembled kings in battle and took her away.
