23.Burned by Lord Krsna’s spiritual effulgence, the demon fell to the ground and gave up its life. Then many dundubhi drums suddenly sounded and there was a great shower of flowers.

24.-27.Then Lord Krsna’s handsome and charming liberated associates, their two-armed spiritual forms effulgent, wearing yellow garments, crowns, earrings, forest garlands, and tinkling anklets, their limbs anointed with sandal and kunkuma, flutes in their hands, their faces gently smiling, their hearts overcome with mercy for the devotees, and their features and dress those of gopas, suddenly came there, riding on a splendid chariot made of the best of jewels. 28.Wearing splendid garments and jewel ornaments, they approached Lord Krsna in Bhandiravana forest.

29.Bowing before Lord Krsna, and glorifying Him with prayers, they went to Goloka, the highest place in the spiritual world.

30.Having once been demons, they were now devotees, liberated associates of Lord Krsna.
