Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.7.1:
इत्थं स-परिवारस्य मातस् तस्यातिरोदनैः ।
ब्रह्माण्डं व्याप्य सञ्जातो महोत्पात-चयः क्षणात् ॥ १ ॥
itthaṃ sa-parivārasya mātas tasyātirodanaiḥ |
brahmāṇḍaṃ vyāpya sañjāto mahotpāta-cayaḥ kṣaṇāt || 1 ||
Śrī Parīkṣit Mahārāja said: O mother, when Śrī Kṛṣṇa and his family began to cry pitifully in this way, then the sound of their weeping instantly engulfed the entire brahmāṇḍa. Subsequently, various kinds of foreboding calamities such as shooting stars began to appear.
Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda
(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)
This seventh chapter describes the curtailing of Śrī Bhagavān’s illusion from the crafty tricks of Śrī Brahmā. Finally, this chapter describes the subject matter of the glories of the pinnacle of excellence of the gopīs, in which Śrī Nārada heard and described from the lotus mouth of Śrī Bhagavān.
The crying of Bhagavān instantly spread all over the entire brahmāṇḍa and many different types of foreboding calamities like bolts of lightning and “shooting stars” (spontaneous meteors) began to appear.
