TEXT No. 2

Sa uchchakase dhabalodaro daro Api urukramasya adharasona sonima Dadhmayamanah karakanjasampute Yatha abjasande kalahansa' utswanah.


Sa—that, Uchchakase—became brilliant, Dhahalodaro—white and fatboweled, Daro—conchshell, Api—although it is so, Urukramasya—of the great adventurer, Adharasona—by the transcendental quality of His lips, Sonima—reddened, Dadhmayamanah—being sounded, Karakanjasampute—being caught by grip of hand, Abjasande—by the stems of lotus flower, Yatha—as it is, Kalahnasa—ducking swan, Utswanah—loudly sounding.


The white and fat boweled conchshell being gripped by the hand of Lord Krishna and thus being sounded by Him, appeared to be reddendd by the touch of His lips transcendental and it seemed that a white swan was playing in the net work of the stem of red lotus flour.

Redness of the white conchshell by the liptouch of the Lord is the symbol of spiritual significance. The Lord is all spirit and matter is ignorance of this spiritual existence. Factually there is nothing like matter in the spiritual enlightenment and this spiritual enlightenment takes place at once by the contact of the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna. The Lord is present in every particle of all existence and He can manifest His presence from everything and anything by the spiritual enlightenment of the devotee. Otherwise He reserves the right of not being exposed to everyone and anyone. By ardent love and devotional service of the Lord or in other words by spiritual contact with the Lord everything becomes spiritually reddened like the conch shell in the grip of the lord and the Parmhansa or the supreme intelligent person in the world plays the part of the ducking swan in the water of spiritual bliss eternally decorated by the lotus flower of the Lord's feet.
