evaḿ manuṣya-padavīm anuvartamāno

reme 'ṇga ṣoḍaśa-sahasra-varāńganānāḿ
evam — thus; manuṣya — of human beings; padavīm — the path; anuvartamānaḥ — following; nārāyaṇaḥ — the Supreme Lord, Nārāyaṇa; akhila — of everyone; bhavāya — for the welfare; gṛhīta — having manifested; śaktiḥ — His potencies; reme — He enjoyed; ańga — my dear (King Parīkṣit); ṣoḍaśa — sixteen; sahasra — thousand; vara — most excellent; ańganānām — of women; sa-vrīḍa — shy; sauhṛda — and affectionate; nirīkṣaṇa — by the glances; hāsa — and laughter; juṣṭaḥ — satisfied.
In this way Lord Nārāyaṇa imitated the ways of ordinary humans, manifesting His divine potencies for the benefit of all beings. Thus He enjoyed, dear King, in the company of His sixteen thousand exalted consorts, who served the Lord with their shy, affectionate glances and laughter.
