    तमः सुघोरं गहनं कृतं महद्विदारयद्भूरितरेण रोचिषा । मनोजवं निर्विविशे सुदर्शनं गुणच्युतो रामशरो यथा चमूः ।। १०-८९-५१ ।।

    The Lord’s Sudarśana disc penetrated the darkness with its blazing effulgence. Racing forward with the speed of the mind, it cut through the fearsome, dense oblivion expanded from primeval matter, as an arrow shot from Lord Rāma’s bow cuts through His enemy’s army. ।। 10-89-51 ।।

  2. 52

    द्वारेण चक्रानुपथेन तत्तमः परं परं ज्योतिरनन्तपारम् । समश्नुवानं प्रसमीक्ष्य फाल्गुनः प्रताडिताक्षो पिदधेऽक्षिणी उभे ।। १०-८९-५२ ।।

    Following the Sudarśana disc, the chariot went beyond the darkness and reached the endless spiritual light of the all pervasive brahmajyoti. As Arjuna beheld this glaring effulgence, his eyes hurt, and so he shut them. ।। 10-89-52 ।।

  3. 53

    ततः प्रविष्टः सलिलं नभस्वता बलीयसैजद्बृहदूर्मिभूषणम् । तत्राद्भुतं वै भवनं द्युमत्तमं भ्राजन्मणिस्तम्भसहस्रशोभितम् ।। १०-८९-५३ ।।

    From that region they entered a body of water resplendent with huge waves being churned by a mighty wind. Within that ocean Arjuna saw an amazing palace more radiant than anything he had ever seen before. Its beauty was enhanced by thousands of ornamental pillars bedecked with brilliant gems. ।। 10-89-53 ।।

  4. 54

    तस्मिन् महाभीममनन्तमद्भुतं सहस्रमूर्धन्यफणामणिद्युभिः । विभ्राजमानं द्विगुणोल्बणेक्षणं सिताचलाभं शितिकण्ठजिह्वम् ।। १०-८९-५४ ।।

    In that palace was the huge, awe-inspiring serpent Ananta Śeṣa. He shone brilliantly with the radiance emanating from the gems on His thousands of hoods and reflecting from twice as many fearsome eyes. He resembled white Mount Kailāsa, and His necks and tongues were dark blue. ।। 10-89-54 ।।

  5. 55

    ददर्श तद्भोगसुखासनं विभुं महानुभावं पुरुषोत्तमोत्तमम् । सान्द्राम्बुदाभं सुपिशङ्गवाससं प्रसन्नवक्त्रं रुचिरायतेक्षणम् ।। १०-८९-५५ ।।

    Arjuna then saw the omnipresent and omnipotent Supreme Personality of Godhead, Mahā-Viṣṇu, sitting at ease on the serpent bed. His bluish complexion was the color of a dense rain cloud, He wore a beautiful yellow garment, His face looked charming, His broad eyes were most attractive, and He had eight long, handsome arms. ।। 10-89-55 ।।
