kaḿ prati kathayitum īśe
samprati ko vā pratītim āyātu
kam prati — unto whom; kathayitum — to speak; īśe — am I able; samprati — now; kaḥ — who; vā — or; pratītim — belief; āyātu — would do; go-pati — of the sun-god; tanayā — of the daughter (the Yamunā); kuñje — in the bushes on the bank; gopa-vadhūṭī — of the cowherd girls; viṭam — the hunter; brahma — the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
"To whom can I speak who will believe me when I say that Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is hunting the gopīs in the bushes by the banks of the river Yamunā? In this way the Lord demonstrates His pastimes."
This verse was also later included in the Padyāvalī (99).
