ya iha suta-karmeṇa pariṇayana-śarmaṇe ‘cinuta kamalā-gaṇam amānam
yad anu kila rādhikāḿ nikhila-sukha-sādhikām acita sakala-samudaya-sāram

Refrain: Look at the wonderful glories of Gokula! Numberless goddesses of fortune have come to the auspicious ceremony of Lord Krsna’s wedding!
1) See how Radha is the happiest and the most beautiful of all. See how She stands in peerless, eternal youth.
2) King Nanda has arranged that his son be gloriously dressed and decorated for the occasion. Filled with love, Balarama and all the royal relatives have come from Dvaraka.
3) Even the three worlds cannot hold all the joy in King Nanda’s heart. I think his heart must be filled with joy as he yearns to hear the marriage vows.
