My butter-stealer Kṛṣṇa, Who is young and wins the mind, is appearing and roaming like a swan in the lake (of Vraja). The forests, creepers, fruits, flowers, and gardens of Vraja are shining forth due to the presence of Mukunda.[1]

The yellow robes over the cloud-like grey body of Kṛṣṇa appear as if lightening-streaks are dancing over a cloud. His garland is beautiful, His flute is attractive, and His large forehead is shining.[2]

All the organs of Kṛṣṇa win the mind, His eyes are like lotus, and His lips and cheeks are incomparable. The birds, viz., cuckoos, cakka, cakora, and peacocks, are His friends and they chirp in unison with what Hari says.[3]

(In Vraja), sometimes the flute melody flows, and sometimes Kṛṣṇa caresses a bird by holding him in His hand. Sometimes Kṛṣṇa walks with a colorful gait, and all the animals, cows and deers, accompany Him.[4]

There are millions of poets and much more comparisons and similes, but still the actual beauty of Keśava (Kṛṣṇa) is uncharacterized. In that case, what poem or story will Animeṣa tell in which the immaculate beauty of Kṛṣṇa is present in its totality?[5]
