Pictures Canto 10 part 3 - page 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Chapter 46 - 47 - 48 - 49 - 50 - 51



Chapter 46: Uddhava Spends the Night in Gokula Talking with Nanda

(4) With their minds fixed on Me, they, absorbed in Me, have made Me the purpose of their lives and abandoned all their material ties [with their husband, home and children, see 10.29: 4]. Understanding the ones who for My sake left behind this world and its moral obligations, I sustain those who have only Me as their beloved and dearmost Self.



Chapter 47: The Gopî Reveals Her Emotions:
The Song of the Bee

(14) Oh mister sixlegs, dear bee, why are you singing so busily about the Master of the Yadus in front of us who are old friends of this Friend of Vijaya [Arjuna] who left behind their homes? You better sing of His topics before His [new] girlfriends, the pain of whose breasts He [now has] relieved. His sweethearts will provide you the charity you seek [vijalpa *4].



(44) Will that descendant of Das'ârha return to this place and with His touch bring us back to life who are tormented by the sorrow He gave rise to Himself? Will He do that even as Indra with his clouds would [replenish] a forest?



(59) What is one compared to these women who, impure in their conduct towards Krishna, wander in the forests? What is one's position compared to this stage of perfect love for the Supreme Soul? For the one who is of constant worship, even when he is not very learned, most certainly the Lord directly bestows the highest good, the good that imbibed works like the king of all medicines [that is: irrespective the person].


Chapter 48: Krishna Pleases His Devotees

(5) She prepared her body by bathing, anointing, dressing up with ornaments, garlands and perfume, bethel nut and drinking fragrant fluids and such, and then shyly and with playful smiles approached Mâdhava with tempting glances.


(22) Because it has never been proven that You are determined by physical matters and such, there is with You no question of a literal birth or of material opposites. For that reason there exists for You in fact no bondage or any liberation [compare 10.14: 26]. And if that happens to be so according to Your sweet will [see e.g. 10.11: 7], it is the consequence of our mistaken notion about You [like in 10.23: 10-11].


Thus far version three, ......what follows is the second version. 

Chapter 49: Akrûra's Mission in Hastinâpura

(1-2) S'rî S'uka said: 'He [Akrûra] going to Hastinâpura, the city standing out with the glory of the kings of the Pûru-dynasty [see family-tree], saw there the son of Ambikâ [Dhritarâshthra, see 9.22: 25] together with Bhîshma, Vidura and Prithâ [Kuntî], as also Bâhlika and his son [Somadatta], Dronâcârya and Kripâcârya, Karna, Duryodhana, the son of Drona [As'vatthâmâ], the Pândavas and other friends.


(28) In what way would a person be able to escape from what is ordained by the Controller, who to diminish the burden of the earth has descended in the Yadu family [see B.G. 9: 8]?



Chapter 50: Krishna Uses Jarâsandha
and Establishes the City of Dvârakâ

(35-36) Mukunda with His forces unbroken having crossed the ocean of the armies of His enemy, was in praise being showered with flowers by the servants of the three worlds. Being met by the people of Mathurâ who with their fever allayed felt great joy, His glory was sung by bards, heralds and panegyrists.



Chapter 51: The Deliverance of Mucukunda

(19) Time, more powerful than the powerful, is the Supreme Inexhaustible Lord in Control who,
playing a game of herdsman and flock, sets the mortal beings in motion.
