Delivering the Wives of the Brähmanas

Chapter 18: Verse 21-30



21.The boys said: Kåñna and Balaräma sent us. We are very hungry. O mothers, please give us some food and we will at once take it to Kåñna and Balaräma.

22.Kåñna and Balaräma are far from here. They are at the roots of a banyan tree in Madhuvana forest.

23.Kåñna and Balaräma are also tired and hungry. They also ask for some food. O mothers, please tell us now. Will you give us some food, or not?

24.Hearing the gopa boys' words, the brähmanas' wives became eager to see the lotus feet of Lord Kåñna and Lord Balaräma. The hairs of their bodies stood erect and their eyes become filled with tears of happiness.

25.Taking many kinds of perfectly spiced foods, beautiful rice, sweet-rice, piñöaka cakes, sweet yogurt, milk, ghee, and honey, . . .

26.. . . and placing them in shining silver and brass jars, all the brähmanas' wives went to see Lord Kåñna.

27.Their hearts filled with many desires, the fortunate brähmanas' wives went, eager to see Lord Kåñna.

28.Coming to that place, the wives saw Lord Kåñna, who was staying with Balaräma and the boys at the roots of a banyan tree, who was like a moon surrounded by many stars, . . .

29.. . . who was dark, youthful, handsome, charming, smiling, and peaceful, who was dressed in yellow silk, who was Çri Rädhä's beloved, . . .

30. . . . whose face was an autumn moon, who was deocrated with jewel bracelets, armlets, anklets, and other ornaments, . . .
