(3) With the moving curved bows of His eyebrows shooting swift and sharp arrows from the corners of His eyes as if to drive away the powerful lion of Radha's peacefulness, SriGopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

(6) Making the gopis intoxicated with the nectar of His words, and then stealing from them the precious jewels of transcendental amorous pastimes, Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(7) As if to frighten the bumblebee gopis intoxicated by His transcendental glories, He wears on His blue lotus forehead kunkuma tilaka like a stationary lightning flash on a host of monsoon clouds. Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(8) Eagerly tying the two Kama ropes of His ears to capture the restless young cakora birds of Radha's eyes, like a glorious moon decorated with shark-shaped earrings, SriGopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(9) With the powerful soldiers of His restless glances plundering the jewels of the young gopis't1, senses and keeping these jewels in the palace of His heart behind the great sapphire door of His chest, jubilant Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

(11) His hips broad and handsome, and His thighs a pool of sweet nectar for the gopis and the destruction of the sapphire plantain trees' pride, Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(12) His feet lotus flowers, His calves handsome, His knees two chests for the jewels of transcendental amorous pastimes, His body decorated with many ornaments and garments, and His neck graceful, Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(13) His transcendental form loved by the people of Sri Vitthala-desa, nourished by the sweet nectar His pure devotees' service, and eclipsing the splendor of a host of passionate Kamadevas, Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(14) Appearing in this world, Sri Gopala-raja, His bodily hairs erect with joy, chanted the holy names of Lord Vitthalesvara and offered Him the jewel necklace of pure love and the many flowers of the activities of pure devotional service. Sri Gopala-raja is splendidly manifest on the king of mountains.

 

(15) These verses are splendid with prayers to Sri Gopala-raja, who gloriously stands on the crown of the king of mountains. These verses bring pure love to the reader.
