All glories to the son of Nanda Maharaja, beloved of the gopis, the hero of Radha,

beautiful shape, Krishna-rupa or Shacinandana-rupa, is the abode of all beauty, and

attracts all the sages and godly persons.

eyes of the Vraja maidens auspicious. All glories to He who now delights the eyes

rolling down on the earth in great love.
