stoka-stoka—drop by drop; nirudhyamana—although held back, or as if held back; mrdula—softly, gently; prasyandi—oozes; manda—gentle; smitam—smile; prema—transcendental love;  udbheda—rising; nirargala—uncheckable; prasrmara—streaming forth; pravyakta—evident; roma—hair standing on end; udgamam—appearing; srotum—in order to hear; srotra—to the ear; manah—the  mind; haram—pleasing; vraja—vadhu—the wives of Vraja (i.e., the milkmaids); lila—playful; mithah—mutual; jalpitam—talks; mithya—false; svapam—sleep; upasmahe—we worship; bhagavatah—the  Lord; kridani—playfully; milan— closed; drsah—with eyes.

 

We worship Lord Krishna, who is mischievously keeping His eyes closed, pretending to sleep, in order to hear the milkmaids' playful talks, which are so pleasing to the ear and mind. Though Krsna is  trying to restrain Himself, a gentle smile trickles from His lips drop by drop, and He cannot check the rising tide of love, which causes His hair to begin standing on end.
