Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.23.23
yasmin nimagna-manasas tam athākṣi-randraiḥ
antaḥ praveśya su-ciraḿ parirabhya tāpaḿ
prājñaḿ yathābhimatayo vijahur narendra
prāyaḥ — repeatedly; śruta — heard; priya-tama — of their dearmost; udaya — the glories; karṇa-pūraiḥ — which were the ornaments of their ears; yasmin — in whom; nimagna — submerged; manasaḥ — their minds; tam — Him; atha — then; akṣi-randhraiḥ — through the apertures of their eyes; antaḥ — within; praveśya — making enter; su-ciram — for a long time; parirabhya — embracing; tāpam — their distress; prājñam — the inner consciousness; yathā — as; abhimatayaḥ — the functions of false ego; vijahuḥ — they gave up; nara-indra — O ruler of men.
O ruler of men, for a long time those brāhmaṇa ladies had heard about Kṛṣṇa, their beloved, and His glories had become the constant ornaments of their ears. Indeed, their minds were always absorbed in Him. Through the apertures of their eyes they now forced Him to enter within their hearts, and then they embraced Him within for a long time. In this way they finally gave up the pain of separation from Him, just as sages give up the anxiety of false ego by embracing their innermost consciousness.
