1. 1

    श्रीशुक उवाच एकैकशस्ताः कृष्णस्य पुत्रान् दश दशाबलाः । अजीजनन्ननवमान् पितुः सर्वात्मसम्पदा ।। १०-६१-१ ।।

    Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: Each of Lord Kṛṣṇa’s wives gave birth to ten sons, who were not less than their father, having all His personal opulence. ।। 10-61-1 ।।

  2. 2

    गृहादनपगं वीक्ष्य राजपुत्र्योऽच्युतं स्थितम् । प्रेष्ठं न्यमंसत स्वं स्वं न तत्तत्त्वविदः स्त्रियः ।। १०-६१-२ ।।

    Because each of these princesses saw that Lord Acyuta never left her palace, each thought herself the Lord’s favorite. These women did not understand the full truth about Him. ।। 10-61-2 ।।

  3. 3

    चार्वब्जकोशवदनायतबाहुनेत्रसप्रेमहासरसवीक्षितवल्गुजल्पैः । सम्मोहिता भगवतो न मनो विजेतुं स्वैर्विभ्रमैः समशकन् वनिता विभूम्नः ।। १०-६१-३ ।।

    The Supreme Lord’s wives were fully enchanted by His lovely, lotuslike face, His long arms and large eyes, His loving glances imbued with laughter, and His charming talks with them. But with all their charms these ladies could not conquer the mind of the all-powerful Lord. ।। 10-61-3 ।।

  4. 4

    स्मायावलोकलवदर्शितभावहारिभ्रूमण्डलप्रहितसौरतमन्त्रशौण्डैः । पत्न्यस्तु षोडशसहस्रमनङ्गबाणैः यस्येन्द्रियं विमथितुं करणैर्न शेकुः ।। १०-६१-४ ।।

    The arched eyebrows of these sixteen thousand queens enchantingly expressed those ladies’ secret intentions through coyly smiling sidelong glances. Thus their eyebrows boldly sent forth conjugal messages. Yet even with these arrows of Cupid, and with other means as well, they could not agitate Lord Kṛṣṇa’s senses. ।। 10-61-4 ।।

  5. 5

    इत्थं रमापतिमवाप्य पतिं स्त्रियस्ता ब्रह्मादयोऽपि न विदुः पदवीं यदीयाम् । भेजुर्मुदाविरतमेधितयानुरागहासावलोकनवसङ्गमलालसाद्यम् ।। १०-६१-५ ।।

    Thus these women obtained as their husband the master of the goddess of fortune, although even great demigods like Brahmā do not know how to approach Him. With ever-increasing pleasure, they felt loving attraction for Him, exchanged smiling glances with Him, eagerly anticipated associating with Him in ever-fresh intimacy and enjoyed in many other ways. ।। 10-61-5 ।।
