|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 90: Summary of Lord Kṛṣṇa's Glories|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.90.8-9
vādayadbhir mudā vīṇāḿ
sicyamāno 'cyutas tābhir
hasantībhiḥ sma recakaiḥ
yakṣībhir yakṣa-rāḍ iva
upagīyamānaḥ — being glorified by song; gandharvaiḥ — by Gandharvas; mṛdańga-paṇava-ānakān — mṛdańga, paṇava and ānaka drums; vādayadbhiḥ — who were playing; mudā — joyfully; vīṇām — vīṇas; sūta-māgadha-vandibhiḥ — by Sūta, Māgadha and Vandi reciters; sicyamānaḥ — being squirted with water; acyutaḥ — Lord Kṛṣṇa; tābhiḥ — by them (His wives); hasantībhiḥ — who were laughing; sma — indeed; recakaiḥ — with syringes; pratiṣiñcan — squirting back at them; vicikrīḍe — He sported; yakṣībhiḥ — with Yakṣī nymphs; yakṣa-rāṭ — the lord of the Yakṣas (Kuvera); iva — like.
As Gandharvas joyfully sang His praises to the accompaniment of mṛdańga, paṇava and ānaka drums, and as professional reciters known as Sūtas, Māgadhas and Vandīs played vīṇās and recited poems praising Him, Lord Kṛṣṇa would play with His wives in the water. Laughing, the queens would squirt water on Him with syringes, and He would squirt them back. Thus Kṛṣṇa would sport with His queens in the same way that the lord of the Yakṣas sports with the Yakṣī nymphs.
