Beautiful, cool, gentle


“’Your glance steals the beauty of the best blooming lotus growing in the clear lakes of autumn in the saintly land of Vraja.’ In this way the gopis describe the extraordinary beauty, fragrance, coolness and gentleness of Krsnas eyes by comparing them to the superexcellent autumnal lotus flower.”

— Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, Sarartha Darsini (Srimad Bhagavatam, Tenth Canto Commentaries), chapter 31, text 2.
