तत्र प्रौढानन्दाद्, यथा कर्णामृते (२.२५) —
राधा पुनातु जगद् अच्युत-दत्त-चित्ता
मन्थानकं विदधती दधि-रिक्त-पात्रे ।
यस्याः स्तन-स्तवक-चञ्चल-लोचनालिर्
देवो’पि रुद्ध-हृदयो धवलं दुदोह ॥२.४.८१॥

tatra prauḍhānandād, yathā karṇāmṛte (2.25) —
rādhā punātu jagad acyuta-datta-cittā

devo’pi ruddha-hṛdayo dhavalaṃ dudoha
||2.4.81||

English translation

Insanity arising from intense bliss, from Kṛṣṇa-karṇāmṛta:
“May Rādhā who, having surrendered Her heart to Kṛṣṇa, churned an empty yogurt pot, purify the world. And may Kṛṣṇa, whose eyes like bees hovered upon Rādhā’s breasts which were like clusters of flowers, and who with mind absorbed in Rādhā, began milking a bull, purify the world.”
