TEXT 167

‘prābhava-vaibhava’-rūpe dvividha prakāśe
eka-vapu bahu rūpa yaiche haila rāse


prābhava—prābhava; vaibhava—vaibhava; rūpe—in forms; dvi-vidha prakāśe—twofold manifestations; eka-vapu—the same original form; bahu rūpa—expanded into unlimited numbers; yaiche—like; haila—it was; rāse—while dancing in the rāsa dance with the gopīs.


“In His original form, Kṛṣṇa manifests Himself in two features—prābhava and vaibhava. He expands His one original form into many, as He did during the rāsa-līlā dance.
