tās tathā tyakta-sarvāśāḥ
tāḥ — those ladies; tathā — in such a state; tyakta-sarva-āśāḥ — having given up all material desires; prāptāḥ — arrived; ātma-didṛkṣayā — with the desire of seeing Himself; vijñāya — understanding; akhila-dṛk — of the vision of all creatures; draṣṭā — the seer; prāha — He spoke; prahasita-ānanaḥ — with a smile upon His face.
Lord Kṛṣṇa, who witnesses the thoughts of all creatures, understood how those ladies had abandoned all worldly hopes and come there simply to see Him. Thus He addressed them as follows with a smile upon His face.
