In today's class, Srila Dhanurdhara Swami continues with Brihad Bhagavatamrta Part 1 Chapter 5 Text 103-105.

Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 5 Text 103-105

yesam darsana-sambhasa-
sparsanugamanasanaih
bhojanodvaha-sayanais
tathanyair daihikair drdaih

duschedaih prema-sambandhair
atma-sambandhato 'dhikaih
baddhah svargapavargeccham
chittva bhaktim vivardhayan

krsno vismrta-vaikuntho
vilasaih svair anu-ksanam
navam navam anirvacyam
vitanoti sukham mahat

TRANSLATION

Krsna has now forgotten Vaikuntha, for He is bound by intense, unbreakable loving exchanges with these Yadus. He sees the Yadus, touches them, talks with them, sits with them. He eats and sleeps with them, follows then when they walk, takes part in their marriage ceremonies, and shares in their other activities of embodied life. These relations are more tangible then the yogis' union with Him in meditation. Thus, by His pastimes Krsna spreads among the Yadus infinite pleasure, ever fresh and indescribable, destroying any desire they might have for heaven or liberation, and increasing more and more their devotion to Him.
