Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda
(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)
Although queens such as Śrī Rukmiṇī and others were greatly composed and deeply grave by nature, nevertheless, after seeing the wonderful gopa-veśa of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, they became extremely agitated by divine lust, falling faint on the ground due to the upheaval of their intense love. The word ādi indicates other queens such as Mitravindā, Satyā, Bhadrā and Lakṣmaṇā. A few queens among them fell on the ground in a swoon, agitated by the power of their unprecedented divine love.
