na—not; ayam—this; śriyaḥ—of the goddess of fortune; aṅge—on the chest; u—alas; nitānta-rateḥ—who is very intimately related; prasādaḥ—the favor; svaḥ—of the heavenly planets; yoṣitām—of women; nalina—of the lotus flower; gandha—having the fragrance; rucām—and bodily luster; kutaḥ—much less; anyāḥ—others; rāsa-utsave—in the festival of the rāsa dance; asya—of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa; bhuja-daṇḍa—by the arms; gṛhīta—embraced; kaṇṭha—their necks; labdha-āśiṣām—who achieved such a blessing; yaḥ—which; udagāt—became manifest; vraja-sundarīṇām—of the beautiful gopīs, the transcendental girls of Vrajabhūmi.
“‘When Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa was dancing with the gopīs in the rāsa-līlā, the gopīs were embraced around the neck by the Lord’s arms. 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 resemble the beauty and fragrance of lotus flowers. And what to speak of worldly women, who may be very, very beautiful according to material estimation?’”
