These seven wild bulls are impossible to tame, O hero. They have defeated many princes, breaking their limbs.

yad ime nigrhitah syus
 tvayaiva yadu-nandana
varo bhavan abhimato
 duhitur me sriyah-pate

If You can subdue them, O descendant of Yadu, You will certainly be the appropriate bridegroom for my daughter, O Lord of Sri.

evam samayam akarnya
 baddhva parikaram prabhuh
atmanam saptadha krtva
 nyagrhnal lilayaiva tan

Upon hearing these terms, the Lord tightened His clothing, expanded Himself into seven forms and easily subdued the bulls.

According to Srila Sridhara Svami, Lord Krsna expanded Himself into seven forms not only to playfully defeat the seven bulls but also to show Princess Satya that she would not have to compete with His other queens, since He could enjoy with all of them simultaneously.
