Śrī Nārada saw that the Yādavas had happily sat down on their own seats in the assembly named Śrī Sudharmā according to the proper succession. They were looking attractive due to being decorated by their own beauty, ornaments and garlands of Pārijāta flowers.
Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda
(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)
In the six ślokas beginning with sabhāyāṃ Śrī Nārada describes the darśana of the Yādavas. In the assembly named Śrī Sudharmā the most attractive Yādavas were seated on their respective seats. How? They had sat down happily according to the appropriate order, that is, by the gradation of seniority, and they were decorated with their natural beauty, ornaments and flower garlands from the divine tree called Pārijāta.
