शक्रं च तस्य माहात्म्यं कीर्तयन्तं मुहुर् मुहुः ।
स्वस्मिन् कृतोपकारांश् च वर्णयन्तं महा-मुदा ॥ ६ ॥

svīye niṣaṇṇaṃ tat-pārśve rājantaṃ sva-vibhūtibhiḥ || 7 ||

Devarāja Indra was sitting on His seat near Śrī Bhagavān with such opulence as umbrella, cāmara and fans, and was repeatedly singing His glories. While describing all the favors granted by Bhagavān, tears of great joy were pouring down from his one thousand eyes.

Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda

(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)

Afterwards Śrī Nārada also had reception of Śrī Indra. Śrī Indra was singing aloud the numerous glories of Śrī Viṣṇu’s bhakta-vatsalya, His affectionate guardianship towards all devotees. While describing all the favors such as accepting the sovereignty of the three worlds and offering it to him, streams of tears were pouring down from his one thousand eyes out of deep affection. Devarāja Indra sat on his aindra throne near Śrī Viṣṇu. Sva-vibhūti means “elegantly adorned by a pageant of umbrellas, cāmaras, ornaments and transport vehicles.”
