(Parrots praise Radha and Krsna)
rasotsavad vanchita-purtir isitus
tat-purtito ‘bhut sukha-sambhrtam jagat
The gopis were enchanted by the sounds of Krsna’s flute. Because the gopis were enchanted the great great rasa-dance festival was performed. Because rasa-dance festival was performed the Lord’s desires were fulfilled. Because the Lord’s desires were fulfilled, the universe became full of joy.

Playing on the king of Vraja’s chest, Krsna is like a garland of blue lotus petals. How can He have limitless qualities Lord Ananta cannot describe with thousands of voices?

He trembles with love for Her and wanders aimlessly as a madman.

The beautiful-eyebrowed girls of Vraja worship Lord Krsna, offering their perspiration, their hairs standing up in ecstasy, the nectar of their respectful speeches, the fragrance of their bodies, and their gentle smiles as padya water, arghya water, acamaniya water, incense, and flowers. The nectar of their embraces and amorous pastimes is the offering of foodstuff they place before the Lord, and the nectar of their kisses is their offering of betelnuts.
