Book 10: Forty-six Chapter (First Half)

Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 46: Verses 46-49

(Now) rose to the heavens the music of the women of Vraja, who were celebrating at the pitch of their voice the exploits of Sri Krsna (the lotus-eyed Lord), blended with the (gurgling) noise produced by the churning of curds, both of which combined to drive away the evil forces operating in the (four) quarters. Seeing a chariot plated with gold at the portals of Nanda, now that the glorious sun-god had appeared at the horizon), the (unsophisticated) women of Vraja (who had no knowledge of the outside world, Sri Krsna being their solitary concern), inquired (of one another) as to whose chariot it was, and suggested as follows:- "May it be that Akrura-by whom the lotus-eyed Sri Krsna was taken away to Mathura (the city founded by and named after the demon Madhu), and who (thus) accomplished the purpose of Kamsa (his master)-has turned up (once more). Is he (now) going to offer oblations to (the spirit of) his deceased master with our bodies (flesh)?" While the women were talking in this strain, Uddhava returned (to Nanda's residence from the bank of the holy Yamuna) having finished his daily routine (of bath and devotions).

Thus ends the forty-sixth discourse entitled "Sri Krsna dispels the agony of Nanda," in the first half of Book Ten of the great and glorious Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita.
