aho rūpam aho dhāma

aho asyā navaḿ vayaḥ

iti te tām abhidrutya

papracchur jāta-hṛc-chayāḥ


aho — how wonderful; rūpam — Her beauty; aho — how wonderful; dhāma — Her bodily luster; aho — how wonderful; asyāḥ — of Her; navam — new; vayaḥ — beautiful age; itiin this way; te — those demons; tām — unto the beautiful woman; abhidrutya — going before Her hastily; papracchuḥ — inquired from Her; jāta-hṛt-śayāḥ — their hearts being filled with lust to enjoy Her.


Upon seeing the beautiful woman, the demons said, "Alas, how wonderful is Her beauty, how wonderful the luster of Her body, and how wonderful the beauty of Her youthful age!" Speaking in this way, they quickly approached Her, full of lusty desires to enjoy Her, and began to inquire from Her in many ways.
