sri-kamankusa-tiksna-suddha-mukutaih purnendu-san-mandalaih
slistanyonya-milad-dalavali-sirah pascad vibhage kvacit
abje ced abhavisyatam vikasita-syamambujantar-gate
sri-panyor upamam tadatra kavayo ‘dasyan amubhyam hareh

 

sri-kama-of cupid; ankusa-with the goads; tiksna-sharp; suddha-pure; muktutaih-with points; purna-full; indu-of moons; sat-being so; mandalaih-with circles; slista-touching anyonya-mutually; milat-meeting; dala-of petals; avali- series; sirah-heads; pascat-behind; vibhage-two parts; kvacit; in a certain way; abje-two red lotus flowers; cet-if; abhavisyatam-could be; vikasita-blossoming; syama-blue; ambuja-lotus flowers; antah-gate-within; sri-panyoh-of the two hands; upamam-metaphor; tada-they; atra-in this connection; kavayah-poets; adasyat-would give; amubhyam-for them; hareh- of Lord Hari.

 

If it were possible for them to say it, poets would say that Lord Hari’s hands are red lotus flowers growing in blossoming blue lotus flowers with petals embraced by both full moons and Kamadeva’s glistening, sharp goads.

vrsabha-kakuda-nindi-skandhayos tungatam sat-
purusa-varatayaivety ahur eke bakareh
mama tu matam idam sri-radhika-dor-mrnali-
satata-milana-modat phullataivatra hetuh

 

vrsabha-of bulls; kakuda-the hump; nindi-chastizing; skandhayoh-of the shoulders; tungatam-status of being broad and raised; sat-purusa-varataya-because of being the Supreme Personality of Godhead; eva-certainly; iti-thus; ahuh-they say; eke-some; baka-areh-of Lord Krsna, the enemy of Bakasura; mama-my; tu-but; matam-opinion; idam-this; sri-radhika-of Srimati Radharani; doh-of the arms; mrnali-of the lotus stems; satata-constant; milana-touch; modat-because of happiness; phullata-blossoming; eva-certainly; atra-in this matter; hetuh-the reason.

 

Some poets say that because He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna’s broad shoulders rebuke the bull’s great hump. My idea is that because Sri Radhika’s lotus-stem arms always touch them, His shoulders have blossomed with happiness.

amsau-the two shoulders; hareh; of Lord Hari; ullasatah-are splendidly manifest; samunnatau-raised; manye-I think; lasat-glistening; kaustubha-with the Kaustubha gem; kantha-of His neck; madhurim-the sweetness; drastum; to see; sada-always; udgrivikaya-with neck raised; utsukena-with eagerness; tam- that; parsva-sides; dvayena-with both; unnamitau-raised; sva-mastakau-its own heads.

 

I think that Lord Hari’s splendid shoulders are broad because His shoulders’s heads always crane their necks, eager to see the sweetness of His neck decorated with the glittering Kaustubha gem.

I praise Lord Hari’s back, which is very broad at the top, which gradually tapers, which is a great sapphire throne for the monarch of sweetness, which is a charming current in a flood of handsomeness, and which is worshiped by the eyes of the deer-eyed gopis.

Its supremely new splendor decorating the king of jewels, the handsomeness of its three lines delighting the eyes of the people in the three worlds, and its waves of sound rebuking the sounds of the cuckoos, bees, flute, and vina, Lord Hari’s sapphire-conchshell neck shines with great splendor.

Bad poets say the full-moon of Krsna’s face became spotless by taking birth in a family of gopis. Listen to my opinion: It is pure by nature and those who take shelter of it become as pure as it.

If the creator Brahma had furnished the moon not with spots, but with two bandhuka flowers, two mirrors, a series of nice kunda buds, two dancing khanjana birds, a half-moon, a sesame flower, Kama’s bow, and a garland of moving bumble-bees, then the best of poets would have described Lord Krsna’s face by saying that the moon of Lord Krsna’s face has two bandhuka flowers that are His lips, two mirrors that are His cheeks, a series of beautiful kunda buds that are His teeth, two dancing khanjana birds that are His eyes, a half-moon that is His forehead, a sesame flower that is His nose, a Kama’s bow that is His eyebrows, and a garland of moving bumblebees that is His curling locks of hair.

Flooded with handsomeness, rebuking the rising moon and the blue lotus petal, and in in childhood caressed by His mother, who placed her thumb in its middle and two fingers beneath it, Lord Hari’s slightly raised and limitlessly glorious chin shines with great splendor.
