English translation

An example of longing for the Lord is given in the Kṛṣṇa-Karṇāmṛta:
“I long to see that young Kṛṣṇa who enchants the universe with His curved black eyebrows, thick eyelashes, with His attractive, shifty eyes, with His soft words that melt the heart, with His sweet red lips, and with the intoxicating sound emanating from the clear notes of His flute.”
