- tadā bakāriṁ sura-loka-vāsinaḥ
- samākiran nandana-mallikādibhiḥ
- samīḍire cānaka-śaṅkha-saṁstavais
- tad vīkṣya gopāla-sutā visismire
tadā—at that time; baka-arim—unto the enemy of Bakāsura; sura-loka-vāsinaḥ—the celestial denizens of the higher planets; samākiran—showered flowers; nandana-mallikā-ādibhiḥ—with such flowers as mallikā, which are grown in Nandana-kānana; samīḍire—also congratulated Him; ca—and; ānaka-śaṅkha-saṁstavaiḥ—by celestial kettledrums and conchshells, accompanied with prayers; tat vīkṣya—by seeing this; gopāla-sutāḥ—the cowherd boys; visismire—were struck with wonder.
At that time, the celestial denizens of the higher planetary system showered mallikā-puṣpa, flowers grown in Nandana-kānana, upon Kṛṣṇa, the enemy of Bakāsura. They also congratulated Him by sounding celestial kettledrums and conchshells and by offering prayers. Seeing this, the cowherd boys were struck with wonder.
