Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.71.26

dorbhyāḿ pariṣvajya ramāmalālayaḿ

mukunda-gātraḿ nṛ-patir hatāśubhaḥ

lebhe parāḿ nirvṛtim aśru-locano

hṛṣyat-tanur vismṛta-loka-vibhramaḥ


dorbhyām — with his arms; pariṣvajya — embracing; ramā — of the goddess of fortune; amala — faultless; alayam — the abode; mukunda — of Lord Kṛṣṇa; gātram — the body; nṛ-patiḥ — the king; hata — destroyed; aśubhaḥ — all of whose bad fortune; lebhe — achieved; parām — the highest; nirvṛtim — joy; aśru — tears; locanaḥin whose eyes; hṛṣyat — exhilarated; tanuḥ — whose body; vismṛta — forgetting; loka — of the mundane realm; vibhramaḥ — the illusory affairs.


The eternal form of Lord Kṛṣṇa is the everlasting residence of the goddess of fortune. As soon as King Yudhiṣṭhira embraced Him, the King became free of all the contamination of material existence. He immediately felt transcendental bliss and merged in an ocean of happiness. There were tears in his eyes, and his body shook due to ecstasy. He completely forgot that he was living in this material world.
