141.After Brahma’s departure, smiling Goddess Radha gazed again and again with crooked eyes at Lord Krsna’s face. Then She shyly covered Her own face.

142.Wounded by Kamadeva’s arrows and the hairs of Her boy now erect, She bowed before Lord Krsna and affectionately approached His couch.

143.Then She anointed Lord Krsna’s forehead and chest with tilaka markings of sandal, aguru, musk, and kunkuma.

144.Then She affectionately offered Lord Krsna a beautiful jewel cup of nectar and honey. Lord Krsna, the master of the universes, drank it.

145.Then Radha respectfully offered Lord Krsna delicious betelnuts scented with camphor and spices. Lord Krsna chewed them.

146.As Lord Krsna watched, Smiling Radha drank the nectar Lord Krsna offered Her and chewed the betelnuts He offered Her.

147.Lord Krsna happily offered Her the betelnuts He had chewed. She chewed them with great respect. She drank the nectar of His lotus face.

148.Lord Krsna begged for the betelnuts Radha had chewed. Radha refused, smiled, and cheerfully said, “Please forgive Me.”

149.Then Lord Krsna anointed all of Radha’s limbs with sandal, aguru, and kunkuma.

150.Kamadeva eternally meditates on Lord Krsna’s lotus feet. Still, to please Sri Radha, Lord Krsna voluntarily placed Himself under Kamadeva’s control.
