English translation

Kṛṣṇa made Rādhā lower Her eyes in shame by boldly describing Their pastimes of the previous night in front of Her friends. Taking that opportunity, He displayed His skill by expertly drawing frolicking makaris on Her breasts. In this way Kṛṣṇa sported in the groves and fulfilled His youthful years.”
