Book 10: Thirty-one Chapter (First Half)

Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 31: Verses 17-19

Perceiving Your amorous advances made in secret, Your smiling countenance, which kindles love in our heart, Your loving glances and broad chest, the abode of Sri (the goddess of beauty and prosperity). Our mind gets infatuated again and again through intense longing (to meet You). Your manifestation (on earth), 0 Darling, has put an end to the sorrows of the inhabitants of Vraja as well as of the denizens of the forest, and is extremely auspicious for the whole universe. (Pray) unreservedly administer to us-whose mind is full of longing for you-(at least) a little of that remedy (in the form of Your company) which may relieve the pangs of heart of Your own people. You traverse the forest on those tender lotus-like feet which, 0 Darling, we have gently and timidly set on our hard bosom (for fear of injuring them). Are they not pained by coming in contact with gravel etc. ? The mind of us (all), whose life is centred in You, reels at the (very) thought of it.

Thus ends the thirty-first discourse, entitled "the Gopis' Song (at the Lord's disappearance) during the Rasa-Play," in the first half of Book Ten of the great and glorious Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita.
