    On all sides proceeded finely adorned women-attendants of the royal household, as well as courtesans. They rode on palanquins and camels, bulls and buffalo, donkeys, mules, bullock carts and elephants. Their conveyances were fully loaded with grass tents, blankets, clothes and other items for the trip. ।। 10-71-16 ।।

    बलं बृहद्ध्वजपटछत्रचामरैर्वरायुधाभरणकिरीटवर्मभिः । दिवांशुभिस्तुमुलरवं बभौ रवेर्यथार्णवः क्षुभिततिमिङ्गिलोर्मिभिः ।। १०-७१-१७ ।।

    The Lord’s army boasted royal umbrellas, cāmara fans and huge flagpoles with waving banners. During the day the sun’s rays reflected brightly from the soldiers’ fine weapons, jewelry, helmets and armor. Thus Lord Kṛṣṇa’s army, noisy with shouts and clatter, appeared like an ocean stirring with agitated waves and timiṅgila fish. ।। 10-71-17 ।।

    अथो मुनिर्यदुपतिना सभाजितः प्रणम्य तं हृदि विदधद्विहायसा । निशम्य तद्व्यवसितमाहृतार्हणो मुकुन्दसन्दर्शननिर्वृतेन्द्रियः ।। १०-७१-१८ ।।

    Honored by Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the chief of the Yadus, Nārada Muni bowed down to the Lord. All of Nārada’s senses were satisfied by his meeting with Lord Kṛṣṇa. Thus, having heard the decision of the Lord and having been worshiped by Him, Nārada placed Him firmly within his heart and departed through the sky. ।। 10-71-18 ।।

    Thus addressed, the messenger departed and accurately relayed the Lord’s message to the kings. Eager for freedom, they then waited expectantly for their meeting with Lord Kṛṣṇa. ।। 10-71-20 ।।
