TEXT 121
nayam sriyo 'nga u nitanta-rateh prasadah
svar-yositam nalina-gandha-rucam kuto 'nyah
rasotsave 'sya bhuja-danda-grhita-kantha-
labdhasisam ya udagad vraja-sundarinam
na—not; ayam—this; sriyah—of the goddess of fortune; ange—on the chest; u—alas; nitanta-rateh—one who is very intimately related; prasadah—the favor; svah—of the heavenly planets; yositam—of women; nalina—of the lotus flower; gandha—having the aroma; rucam—and bodily luster; kutah—much less; anyah—others; rasa-utsave—in the festival of the rasa dance; asya—of Lord Sri Krsna; bhuja-danda—by the arms; grhita—embraced; kantha—their necks; labdha-asisam—who achieved such a blessing; yah—which; udagat—became manifest; vraja-sundarinam—of the beautiful gopis, the transcendental girls of Vrajabhumi.
" 'When Lord Sri Krsna was dancing with the gopis in the rasa-lila, He put His arms around their necks and embraced them. This transcendental favor was never bestowed upon the goddess of fortune or the other consorts in the spiritual world. Nor was such a thing ever imagined by the most beautiful girls in the heavenly planets, girls whose bodily luster and aroma exactly resemble the lotus flower. And what to speak of worldly women, who may be very, very beautiful according to material estimation?'
This is a verse from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.47.60).
