Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.23.27
tāḿ dṛṣṭvā sahasotthāya
procuḥ prāñjalayaḥ striyaḥ
vayaḿ karma-karīs tubhyaḿ
śādhi naḥ karavāma kim
tām — her; dṛṣṭvā — seeing; sahasā — suddenly; utthāya — rising; procuḥ — they said; prāñjalayaḥ — with folded hands; striyaḥ — the damsels; vayam — we; karma-karīḥ — maidservants; tubhyam — for you; śādhi — please tell; naḥ — us; karavāma — we can do; kim — what.
Seeing her, the damsels suddenly rose and said with folded hands, "We are your maidservants. Tell us what we can do for you."
While Devahūti was thinking of what to do in that great palace in her dirty clothes, there were at once, by the yogic powers of Kardama Muni, one thousand maidservants prepared to serve her. They appeared before Devahūti within the water and presented themselves as her maidservants, simply awaiting her orders.
