|Canto 11: General History||Chapter 4: Drumila Explains the Incarnations of Godhead to King Nimi|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.4.12
iti pragṛṇatāḿ teṣāḿ
darśayām āsa śuśrūṣāḿ
sv-arcitāḥ kurvatīr vibhuḥ
iti — thus; pragṛṇatām — who were offering praise; teṣām — in their presence; striyaḥ — women; ati-adbhuta — very wonderful; darśanāḥ — in appearance; darśayām āsa — He showed; śuśrūṣām — reverential service; su-arcitāḥ — nicely decorated; kurvatīḥ — performing; vibhuḥ — the almighty Lord.
While the demigods were thus praising the Supreme Lord, the all-powerful Lord suddenly manifested before their eyes many women, who were astonishingly gorgeous, decorated with fine clothes and ornaments, and all faithfully engaging in the Lord's service.
Lord Nara-Nārāyaṇa showed His causeless mercy toward the demigods by relieving them of their false prestige. Although the demigods were proud of their personal beauty and female companions, the Lord showed that He was already being adequately served by innumerable gorgeous females, each of whom was far more beautiful than any female companion imagined by the demigods. The Lord manifested such uniquely attractive women through His own mystic potency.
