|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 39: Akrūra's vision|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.39.56-57
vilokya su-bhṛśaḿ prīto
bhaktyā paramayā yutaḥ
sattvam ālambya sātvataḥ
vilokya — (Akrūra) seeing; su-bhṛśam — greatly; prītaḥ — pleased; bhaktyā — with devotion; paramayā — supreme; yutaḥ — enthused; hṛṣyat — standing on end; tanū-ruhaḥ — the hairs of his body; bhāva — out of loving ecstasy; pariklinna — wet; ātma — his body; locanaḥ — and eyes; girā — with words; gadgadayā — choking; astauṣīt — He offered homage; sattvam — soberness; ālambya — taking hold of; sātvataḥ — the great devotee; praṇamya — bowing down; mūrdhnā — with his head; avahitaḥ — attentively; kṛta-añjali-puṭaḥ — joining his palms in supplication; śanaiḥ — slowly.
As the great devotee Akrūra beheld all this, he became extremely pleased and felt enthused with transcendental devotion. His intense ecstasy caused His bodily hairs to stand on end and tears to flow from his eyes, drenching his entire body. Somehow managing to steady himself, Akrūra bowed his head to the ground. Then he joined his palms in supplication and, in a voice choked with emotion, very slowly and attentively began to pray.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Tenth Canto, Thirty-ninth Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Akrūra's Vision."
