sarve mitho darśayantaḥ

sva-sva-bhojya-ruciḿ pṛthak

hasanto hāsayantaś -

bhyavajahruḥ saheśvarāḥ


sarve — all the cowherd boys; mithaḥto one another; darśayantaḥ — showing; sva-sva-bhojya-rucim pṛthak — different varieties of foodstuffs brought from home, with their separate and different tastes; hasantaḥ — after tasting, they were all laughing; hāsayantaḥ ca — and making others laugh; abhyavajahruḥ — enjoyed lunch; saha-īśvarāḥ — along with Kṛṣṇa.


All the cowherd boys enjoyed their lunch with Kṛṣṇa, showing one another the different tastes of the different varieties of preparations they had brought from home. Tasting one another's preparations, they began to laugh and make one another laugh.


Sometimes one friend would say, "Kṛṣṇa, see how my food is relishable," and Kṛṣṇa would take some and laugh. Similarly, Balarāma, Sudāmā and other friends would taste one another's food and laugh. In this way, the friends very jubilantly began to eat their respective preparations brought from home.
