yadasit tad api nyunam
tenanyad api sandadhe
tad api dvy-angulam nyunam
yad yad adatta bandhanam
yada—when; asit—became; tat api—even the new rope that had been joined; nyunam—still short; tena—then, with the second rope; anyat api—another rope also; sandadhe—she joined; tat api—that also; dvi-angulam—by a measurement of two fingers; nyunam—remained short; yat yat adatta—in this way, one after another, whatever ropes she joined; bandhanam—for binding Krsna.
This new rope also was short by a measurement of two fingers, and when another rope was joined to it, it was still two fingers too short. As many ropes as she joined, all of them failed; their shortness could not be overcome.
