TRANSLATION
[The women of Mathura say:] "What austerities must the gopis have performed? With their eyes they always drink the nectar of the form of Lord Krsna, which is the essence of loveliness and is not to be equaled or surpassed. That loveliness is the only abode of beauty, fame and opulence. It is self-perfect, ever fresh and extremely rare."
PURPORT
This text from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.44.14) was spoken by the women of Mathura when they saw Krsna and Balarama in the arena with King Kamsa's great wrestlers Mustika and Canura.
