PURPORT
In the Laghu-bhagavatamrta (1.5.538), Srila Rupa Gosvami has described the beauty of the Lord in this way:
asamanordhva-madhurya-
tarangamrta-varidhih
jangama-sthavarollasi-
rupo gopendra-nandanah
"The beauty of the son of Maharaja Nanda is incomparable. Nothing is higher than His beauty, and nothing can equal it. His beauty is like waves in an ocean of nectar. This beauty is attractive both for moving and for nonmoving objects."
Similarly, in the Tantra-sastra, there is another description of the Lord's beauty:
kandarpa-koty-arbuda-rupa-sobha-
nirajya-padabja-nakham calasya
kutrapy adrsta-sruta-ramya-kanter
dhyanam param nanda-sutasya vaksye
"I shall relate the supreme meditation upon Lord Sri Krsna, the son of Nanda Maharaja. The tips of the toes of His lotus feet reflect the beauty of the bodies of unlimited millions of Cupids, and His bodily luster has never been seen or heard of anywhere."
One may also consult Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.29.14) in this connection.
