Translation

“Make your eyes successful by gazing lovingly at Shri Kṛṣṇa as he reclines upon a cool bed of moist lotus petals.”

Commentary

The sakhé tells Rädhä, “Look, in this meeting place Shri Hari has laid down upon a bed of cool lotus petals that is adorned with diamonds and pearls. Look at him. How can you quarrel with the very person for want of whom you are suffering? He is waiting for you, but you will not abandon your wounded pride.”
