Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Adi 6.74
tapas carantim ajnaya
tapah -- austerity; carantim -- performing; ajnaya -- knowing; sva-pada-sparsana -- of touching His feet; asaya -- with the desire; sakhya -- with His friend Arjuna; upetya -- coming; agrahit -- accepted; panim -- my hand; sa -- that woman; aham -- I; tat -- His; griha-marjani -- keeper of the home.
"Knowing me to be performing austerities with the desire to touch His feet, He came with His friend Arjuna and accepted my hand. Yet I am but a maidservant engaged in sweeping the floor of the house of Sri Krishna."
Like the previous verse, this verse appears in Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.83.11) in connection with the meeting of the family ladies of the Kuru and Yadu dynasties at Samanta-pancaka. At the time of that meeting, the queen of Krishna named Kalindi spoke to Draupadi in this way.
