Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 31

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 21

krsnasya garbha-jagato 'ti-bharavasannam
parsni-prahara-parirugna-phanatapatram
drstvahim adyam upasedur amusya patnya
artah slathad-vasana-bhusana-kesa-bandhah

TRANSLATION

When Kaliya's wives saw how the serpent had become so fatigued from the excessive weight of Lord Krsna, who carries the entire universe in His abdomen, and how Kaliya's umbrellalike hoods had been shattered by the striking of Krsna's heels, they felt great distress. With their clothing, ornaments and hair scattered in disarray, they then approached the eternal Personality of Godhead.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 21

tam nartum udyatam aveksya tada tadiya-
gandharva-siddha-muni-carana-deva-vadhvah
pritya mrdanga-panavanaka-vadya-gita-
puspopahara-nutibhih sahasopaseduh

TRANSLATION

Seeing the Lord dancing, His servants in the heavenly planets -- the Gandharvas, Siddhas, sages, Caranas and wives of the demigods -- immediately arrived there. With great pleasure they began accompanying the Lord's dancing by playing drums such as mrdangas, panavas and anakas. They also made offerings of songs, flowers and prayers.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 21

tah krsna-mataram apatyam anupravistam
tulya-vyathah samanugrhya sucah sravantyah
tas ta vraja-priya-kathah kathayantya asan
krsnanane 'rpita-drso mrtaka-pratikah

TRANSLATION

Although the elder gopis were feeling just as much distress as she and were pouring forth a flood of sorrowful tears, they had to forcibly hold back Krsna's mother, whose consciousness was totally absorbed in her son. Standing like corpses, with their eyes fixed upon His face, these gopis each took turns recounting the pastimes of the darling of Vraja.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 20

gopyo 'nurakta-manaso bhagavaty anante
tat-sauhrda-smita-viloka-girah smarantyah
graste 'hina priyatame bhrsa-duhkha-taptah
sunyam priya-vyatihrtam dadrsus tri-lokam

TRANSLATION

When the young gopis, whose minds were constantly attached to Krsna, the unlimited Supreme Lord, saw that He was now within the grips of the serpent, they remembered His loving friendship, His smiling glances and His talks with them. Burning with great sorrow, they saw the entire universe as void.

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10 Chapter 16 Texts 13-15

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Texts 13-15

tan alaksya bhayodvigna
gopa nanda-purogamah
vina ramena gah krsnam
jnatva carayitum gatam
tair durnimittair nidhanam
matva praptam atad-vidah
tat-pranas tan-manaskas te
duhkha-soka-bhayaturah
a-bala-vrddha-vanitah
sarve 'nga pasu-vrttayah
nirjagmur gokulad dinah
krsna-darsana-lalasah

TRANSLATION

Seeing the inauspicious omens, Nanda Maharaja and the other cowherd men were fearful, for they knew that Krsna had gone to herd the cows that day without His elder brother, Balarama. Because they had dedicated their minds to Krsna, accepting Him as their very life, they were unaware of His great power and opulence. Thus they concluded that the inauspicious omens indicated He had met with death, and they were overwhelmed with grief, lamentation and fear. All the inhabitants of Vrndavana, including the children, women and elderly persons, thought of Krsna just as a cow thinks of her helpless young calf, and thus these poor, suffering people rushed out of the village, intent upon finding Him.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 9

tam preksaniya-sukumara-ghanavadatam
srivatsa-pita-vasanam smita-sundarasyam
kridantam apratibhayam kamalodaranghrim
sandasya marmasu rusa bhujaya cachada

TRANSLATION

Kaliya saw that Sri Krsna, who wore yellow silken garments, was very delicate, His attractive body shining like a glowing white cloud, His chest bearing the mark of Srivatsa, His face smiling beautifully and His feet resembling the whorl of a lotus flower. The Lord was playing fearlessly in the water. Despite His wonderful appearance, the envious Kaliya furiously bit Him on the chest and then completely enwrapped Him in his coils.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 5

viprusmata visadormi-
marutenabhimarsitah
mriyante tira-ga yasya
praninah sthira-jangamah

TRANSLATION

The wind blowing over that deadly lake carried droplets of water to the shore. Simply by coming in contact with that poisonous breeze, all vegetation and creatures on the shore died.
