|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 59: The Killing of the Demon Naraka|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.59.44
itthaḿ ramā-patim avāpya patiḿ striyas tā
brahmādayo 'pi na viduḥ padavīḿ yadīyām
bhejur mudāviratam edhitayānurāga
ittham — in this manner; ramā-patim — the Lord of the goddess of fortune; avāpya — obtaining; patim — as their husband; striyaḥ — the women; tāḥ — they; brahmā-ādayaḥ — Lord Brahmā and other demigods; api — even; na viduḥ — do not know; padavīm — the means of attaining; yadīyām — whom; bhejuḥ — partook of; mudā — with pleasure; aviratam — incessantly; edhitayā — increasing; anurāga — loving attraction; hāsa — smiling; avaloka — glances; nava — ever fresh; sańgama — association; jalpa — playful conversations; lajjāḥ — and shyness.
Thus those women obtained as their husband the husband of the goddess of fortune, although even great demigods like Brahmā do not know how to approach Him. With ever-increasing pleasure they experienced loving attraction for Him, exchanged smiling glances with Him and reciprocated with Him in ever-fresh intimacy, replete with joking and feminine shyness.
