Chapter 1 Text 188

harim uddisate rajo-bharah
puratah sangamayaty amum tamah
vraja-vama-drsam na paddhatih
prakata sarva-drsah sruter api

TRANSLATION

"'The dust from cows and calves on the road creates a kind of darkness indicating that Krsna is returning home from the pasture. Also, the darkness of evening provokes the gopis to meet Krsna. Thus the pastimes of Krsna and the gopis are covered by a kind of transcendental darkness and are therefore impossible for ordinary scholars of the Vedas to see.'

balad aksnor laksmih kavalayati navyam kuvalayam

vicitram radhayah kim api kila rupam vilasati

TRANSLATION

"'The beauty of Srimati Radharani's eyes forcibly devours the beauty of newly grown blue lotus flowers, and the beauty of Her face surpasses that of an entire forest of fully blossomed lotuses. Her bodily luster seems to place even gold into a painful situation. Thus the wonderful, unprecedented beauty of Srimati Radharani is awakening in Vrndavana.'
