Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 7.4.41
kvacid utpulakas tūṣṇīm
kvacit — sometimes; utpulakaḥ — with the hairs of his body standing on end; tūṣṇīm — completely silent; āste — remains; saḿsparśa-nirvṛtaḥ — feeling great joy by contact with the Lord; aspanda — steady; praṇaya-ānanda — due to transcendental bliss from a relationship of love; salila — filled with tears; āmīlita — half-closed; īkṣaṇaḥ — whose eyes.
Sometimes, feeling the touch of the Lord's lotus hands, he became spiritually jubilant and remained silent, his hairs standing on end and tears gliding down from his half-closed eyes because of his love for the Lord.
When a devotee feels separation from the Lord, he becomes eager to see where the Lord is, and sometimes when he feels pangs of separation, tears flow incessantly from his half-closed eyes. As stated by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu in His Śikṣāṣṭaka, yugāyitaḿ nimeṣeṇa cakṣuṣā prāvṛṣāyitam. The words cakṣuṣā prāvṛṣāyitam refer to tears falling incessantly from the devotee's eyes. These symptoms, which appear in pure devotional ecstasy, were visible in the body of Prahlāda Mahārāja.
