uttasthur arat sahasasanasayat
sakam vratair vridita-locanananah

The queens of Lord Sri Krsna rejoiced within their minds to see their husband home after a long period abroad. The queens got up at once from their seats and meditations. As was socially customary, they covered their faces shyly and looked about coyly.

Chapter 13 Text 156

yadavera vipaksa, yata dusta kamsa-paksa,
taha ami kailun saba ksaya
ache dui-cari jana, taha mari' vrndavana,
ailama ami, janiha niscaya

TRANSLATION

"I have already killed all the mischievous demons who are enemies of the Yadu dynasty, and I have also killed Kamsa and his allies. But there are two or four demons still living. I want to kill them, and after doing so I shall very soon return to Vrndavana. Please know this for certain.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 27

sitatapatra-vyajanair upaskrtah
prasuna-varsair abhivarsitah pathi
pisanga-vasa vana-malaya babhau
ghano yatharkodupa-capa-vaidyutaih

TRANSLATION
As the Lord passed along the public road of Dvaraka, His head was protected from the sunshine by a white umbrella. White feathered fans moved in semicircles, and showers of flowers fell upon the road. His yellow garments and garlands of flowers made it appear as if a dark cloud were surrounded simultaneously by sun, moon, lightning and rainbows.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 26

sriyo nivaso yasyorah
pana-patram mukham drsam
bahavo loka-palanam
saranganam padambujam

TRANSLATION
The Lord's chest is the abode of the goddess of fortune. His moonlike face is the drinking vessel for eyes which hanker after all that is beautiful. His arms are the resting places for the administrative demigods. And His lotus feet are the refuge of pure devotees who never talk or sing of any subject except His Lordship.

lilavese prabhura nahi nijanusandhana
iccha jani 'lila sakti' kare samadhana

TRANSLATION

Indeed, the Personality of Godhead forgot Himself in the course of His transcendental pastimes, but His internal potency [lila-sakti], knowing the intentions of the Lord, made all arrangements.

rajara tuccha seva dekhi' prabhura tusta mana
sei ta' prasade paila 'rahasya-darsana'

TRANSLATION

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu had been very satisfied to see the King accept the menial task of sweeping the street, and for this humility the King received the mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He could therefore observe the mystery of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's activities.
