Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 33

yadyapy asau parsva-gato raho-gatas
tathapi tasyanghri-yugam navam navam
pade pade ka virameta tat-padac
calapi yac chrir na jahati karhicit

TRANSLATION
Although Lord Sri Krsna was constantly by their sides, as well as exclusively alone, His feet appeared to them to be newer and newer. The goddess of fortune, although by nature always restless and moving, could not quit the Lord's feet. So what woman can be detached from those feet, having once taken shelter of them?

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 32

tam atmajair drstibhir antaratmana
duranta-bhavah parirebhire patim
niruddham apy asravad ambu netrayor
vilajjatinam bhrgu-varya vaiklavat

TRANSLATION
The insuperable ecstasy was so strong that the queens, who were shy, first embraced the Lord in the innermost recesses of their hearts. Then they embraced Him visually, and then they sent their sons to embrace Him [which is equal to personal embracing]. But, O chief amongst the Bhrgus, though they tried to restrain their feelings, they inadvertently shed tears.
