1. 21

    य एतस्मिन् महाभागाः प्रीतिं कुर्वन्ति मानवाः । नारयोऽभिभवन्त्येतान् विष्णुपक्षानिवासुराः ।। १०-२६-२१ ।।

    Demons cannot harm the demigods, who always have Lord Viṣṇu on their side. Similarly, any person or group attached to all-auspicious Kṛṣṇa cannot be defeated by enemies. ।। 10-26-21 ।।

  2. 22

    तस्मान्नन्द कुमारोऽयं नारायणसमो गुणैः । श्रिया कीर्त्यानुभावेन तत्कर्मसु न विस्मयः ।। १०-२६-२२ ।।

    Therefore, O Nanda Mahārāja, this child of yours is as good as Nārāyaṇa. In His transcendental qualities, opulence, name, fame and influence, He is exactly like Nārāyaṇa. Thus you should not be astonished by His activities. ।। 10-26-22 ।।

  3. 23

    इत्यद्धा मां समादिश्य गर्गे च स्वगृहं गते । मन्ये नारायणस्यांशं कृष्णमक्लिष्टकारिणम् ।। १०-२६-२३ ।।

    [Nanda Mahārāja continued:] After Garga Ṛṣi spoke these words to me and returned home, I began to consider that Kṛṣṇa, who keeps us free from trouble, is actually an expansion of Lord Nārāyaṇa. ।। 10-26-23 ।।

  4. 24

    इति नन्दवचः श्रुत्वा गर्गगीतं व्रजौकसः । दृष्टश्रुतानुभावास्ते कृष्णस्यामिततेजसः । मुदिता नन्दमानर्चुः कृष्णं च गतविस्मयाः ।। १०-२६-२४ ।।

    [Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued:] Having heard Nanda Mahārāja relate the statements of Garga Muni, Your perception and understanding of Krishna's limitless brilliance. The residents of Vṛndāvana became enlivened. Their perplexity was gone, and they worshiped Nanda and Lord Kṛṣṇa with great respect. ।। 10-26-24 ।।

  5. 25

    देवे वर्षति यज्ञविप्लवरुषा वज्राश्मपर्षानिलैः सीदत्पालपशुस्त्रि आत्मशरणं दृष्ट्वानुकम्प्युत्स्मयन् । उत्पाट्यैककरेण शैलमबलो लीलोच्छिलीन्ध्रं यथा बिभ्रद्गोष्ठमपान्महेन्द्रमदभित्प्रीयान्न इन्द्रो गवाम् ।। १०-२६-२५ ।।

    Indra became angry when his sacrifice was disrupted, and thus he caused rain and hail to fall on Gokula, accompanied by lightning and powerful winds, all of which brought great suffering to the cowherds, animals and women there. When Lord Kṛṣṇa, who is by nature always compassionate, saw the condition of those who had only Him as their shelter, He smiled broadly and lifted Govardhana Hill with one hand, just as a small child picks up a mushroom to play with it. Holding up the hill, He protected the cowherd community. May He, Govinda, the Lord of the cows and the destroyer of Indra’s false pride, be pleased with us. ।। 10-26-25 ।।
