hrdopaguhya vijahau
deham karmanubandhanam

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 82 Text 39

sri-suka uvaca
gopyas ca krsnam upalabhya cirad abhistam
yat-preksane drsisu paksma-krtam sapanti
drgbhir hrdi-krtam alam parirabhya sarvas
tad-bhavam apur api nitya-yujam durapam

TRANSLATION

Sukadeva Gosvami said: While gazing at their beloved Krsna, the young gopis used to condemn the creator of their eyelids, [which would momentarily block their vision of Him]. Now, seeing Krsna again after such a long separation, with their eyes they took Him into their hearts, and there they embraced Him to their full satisfaction. In this way they became totally absorbed in ecstatic meditation on Him, although those who constantly practice mystic yoga find such absorption difficult to achieve.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 23 Text 23

prayah-sruta-priyatamodaya-karna-purair
yasmin nimagna-manasas tam athaksi-randraih
antah pravesya su-ciram parirabhya tapam
prajnam yathabhimatayo vijahur narendra

TRANSLATION

O ruler of men, for a long time those brahmana ladies had heard about Krsna, their beloved, and His glories had become the constant ornaments of their ears. Indeed, their minds were always absorbed in Him. Through the apertures of their eyes they now forced Him to enter within their hearts, and then they embraced Him within for a long time. In this way they finally gave up the pain of separation from Him, just as sages give up the anxiety of false ego by embracing their innermost consciousness.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 82 Text 38

etav adrsta-pitarau yuvayoh sma pitroh
samprinanabhyudaya-posana-palanani
prapyosatur bhavati paksma ha yadvad aksnor
nyastav akutra ca bhayau na satam parah svah

TRANSLATION

Before these two boys had ever seen Their real parents, you acted as Their parents and gave Them all affectionate care, training, nourishment and protection. They were never afraid, good lady, because you protected Them just as eyelids protect the eyes. Indeed, saintly persons like you never discriminate between outsiders and their own kin.
