tat-darsana—by the sight of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; dhvasta—destroyed; samasta-kilbisah—having all sins; svastha—healthy; amala—and pure; antahkaranah—the core of whose heart; abhyayat—approached face to face; munih—the King, who was silent due to full mental satisfaction; pravrddha-bhaktya—with an attitude of increased devotional service; pranaya-asru-locanah—with tears in his eyes because of love; prahrsta-roma—his hairs standing on end due to jubilation; anamat—offered respectful obeisances; adi-purusam—unto the expansion of the original personality.
As soon as Maharaja Citraketu saw the Supreme Lord, he was cleansed of all material contamination and situated in his original Krsna consciousness, being completely purified. He became silent and grave, and because of love for the Lord, tears fell from his eyes, and his hairs stood on end. With great devotion and love, he offered his respectful obeisances unto the original Personality of Godhead.
The word tad-darsana-dhvasta-samasta-kilbisah is very important in this verse. If one regularly sees the Supreme Personality of Godhead in the temple, one will gradually be disinfected of all material desires simply by visiting the temple and seeing the Deity. When one is freed from all the results of sinful activities, one will be purified, and with a healthy mind, completely cleansed, he will increasingly make progress in Krsna consciousness.
