nṛtyanty amī śikhina īḍya mudā hariṇyaḥ
kurvanti gopya iva te priyam īkṣaṇena
sūktaiś ca kokila-gaṇā gṛham āgatāya
dhanyā vanaukasa iyān hi satāḿ nisargaḥ
nṛtyanti — are dancing; amī — these; śikhinaḥ — peacocks; īḍya — O worshipable Lord; mudā — with joy; hariṇyaḥ — the female deer; kurvanti — are making; gopyaḥ — the gopīs; iva — as if; te — for You; priyam — gratification; īkṣaṇena — by their glancing; sūktaiḥ — with Vedic prayers; ca — and; kokila-gaṇāḥ — the cuckoos; gṛham — to their home; āgatāya — who has arrived; dhanyāḥ — fortunate; vana-okasaḥ — the residents of the forest; iyān — such; hi — indeed; satām — of saintly personalities; nisargaḥ — the nature.
O worshipable one, these peacocks are dancing before You out of joy, these doe are pleasing You with affectionate glances, just as the gopīs do, and these cuckoos are honoring You with Vedic prayers. All these residents of the forest are most fortunate, and their behavior toward You certainly befits great souls receiving another great soul at home.
