हर्षाद्, यथा श्री-दशमे (१०.३०.१०) —
किं ते कृतं क्षिति तपो बत केशवाङ्घ्रि-
स्पर्शोत्सवोत्पुलकिताङ्ग-रुहैर् विभासि ।

English translation

From joy, from the Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam [10.30.10]:
“O mother earth, what austerity did you perform to attain the touch of Lord Keśava's lotus feet, which has brought you such great joy that your bodily hairs are standing on end? You appear very beautiful in this condition. Was it during the Lord's current appearance that you acquired this ecstatic symptom, or was it perhaps much earlier, when He stepped upon you in His form of the dwarf Vāmanadeva, or even earlier, when He embraced you in His form of the boar Varāhadeva?”
