Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 39

tam menire 'bala mudhah
strainam canuvratam rahah
apramana-vido bhartur
isvaram matayo yathat

TRANSLATION
The simple and delicate women truly thought that Lord Sri Krsna, their beloved husband, followed them and was dominated by them. They were unaware of the extent of the glories of their husband, as the atheists are unaware of Him as the supreme controller.

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.

patnyah patim prosya grhanupagatam
vilokya sanjata-mano-mahotsavah
uttasthur arat sahasasanasayat
sakam vratair vridita-locanananah

TRANSLATION
The queens of Lord Sri Krsna rejoiced within their minds to see their husband home after a long period abroad. The queens got up at once from their seats and meditations. As was socially customary, they covered their faces shyly and looked about coyly.

Srimad Bhagavatam
Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 27

sitatapatra-vyajanair upaskrtah
prasuna-varsair abhivarsitah pathi
pisanga-vasa vana-malaya babhau
ghano yatharkodupa-capa-vaidyutaih

TRANSLATION
As the Lord passed along the public road of Dvaraka, His head was protected from the sunshine by a white umbrella. White feathered fans moved in semicircles, and showers of flowers fell upon the road. His yellow garments and garlands of flowers made it appear as if a dark cloud were surrounded simultaneously by sun, moon, lightning and rainbows.

Canto 1 Chapter 11 Text 26

sriyo nivaso yasyorah
pana-patram mukham drsam
bahavo loka-palanam
saranganam padambujam

TRANSLATION
The Lord's chest is the abode of the goddess of fortune. His moonlike face is the drinking vessel for eyes which hanker after all that is beautiful. His arms are the resting places for the administrative demigods. And His lotus feet are the refuge of pure devotees who never talk or sing of any subject except His Lordship.

atmaramam purna-kamam
nija-labhena nityada
prity-utphulla-mukhah procur
harsa-gadgadaya gira
pitaram sarva-suhrdam
avitaram ivarbhakah

TRANSLATION
The citizens arrived before the Lord with their respective presentations, offering them to the fully satisfied and self-sufficient one, who, by His own potency, incessantly supplies others. These presentations were like the offering of a lamp to the sun. Yet the citizens began to speak in ecstatic language to receive the Lord, just as wards welcome their guardian and father.
