Infinite Moment

Lord Krishna, the all attractive form of the Supreme, sits peacefully beneath a tree just before He concludes His activities on Earth. Every detail of His enchanting, radiant beauty is described in elegant poetry.

(Shrimad-Bhagavatam, by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada) 11.30.28-32

 

bibhrac catur-bhujaṁ rūpaṁ
bhrājiṣṇu prabhayā svayā
diśo vitimirāḥ kurvan
vidhūma iva pāvakaḥ

The Lord was exhibiting His brilliantly effulgent four-armed form, the radiance of which, just like a smokeless fire, dissipated the darkness in all directions.

śrīvatsāṅkaṁ ghana-śyāmaṁ
tapta-hāṭaka-varcasam
kauśeyāmbara-yugmena
parivītaṁ su-maṅgalam

His complexion was the color of a dark blue cloud and His effulgence the color of molten gold, and His all-auspicious form bore the mark of Śrīvatsa.

sundara-smita-vaktrābjaṁ
nīla-kuntala-maṇḍitam
puṇḍarīkābhirāmākṣaṁ
sphuran makara-kuṇḍalam

A beautiful smile graced His lotus face, locks of dark blue hair adorned His head, His lotus eyes were very attractive, and His shark-shaped earrings glittered.

kaṭi-sūtra-brahma-sūtra-
kirīṭa-kaṭakāṅgadaiḥ
hāra-nūpura-mudrābhiḥ
kaustubhena virājitam

He wore a pair of silken garments, an ornamental belt, the sacred thread, bracelets and arm ornaments, along with a helmet, the Kaustubha jewel, necklaces, anklets and other royal emblems.

vana-mālā-parītāṅgaṁ
mūrtimadbhir nijāyudhaiḥ
kṛtvorau dakṣiṇe pādam
āsīnaṁ paṅkajāruṇam

Encircling His body were flower garlands and His personal weapons in their embodied forms. As He sat He held His left foot, with its lotus-red sole, upon His right thigh.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

“O Krishna, O energy of Krishna, please engage me in Your service.”
