When the young women of the city heard that Lord Krsna, the reservoir of pleasure for human eyes, had arrived, they hurriedly went onto the royal road to see Him. They abandoned their household duties and even left their husbands in bed, and in their eagerness the knots of their hair and garments came loose.
tasmin su-sankula ibhasva-ratha-dvipadbhih
krsnam sa-bharyam upalabhya grhadhirudhah
naryo vikirya kusumair manasopaguhya
su-svagatam vidadhur utsmaya-viksitena
The royal road being quite crowded with elephants, horses, chariots and foot soldiers, the women climbed to the top of their houses, where they caught sight of Lord Krsna and His queens. The city ladies scattered flowers upon the Lord, embraced Him in their minds and expressed their heartfelt welcome with broadly smiling glances.
Srila Sridhara Svami comments that the ladies communicated through their affectionate glances their eager inquiries as to the comfort of Lord Krsna’s trip, and so on. In other words, in their ecstasy they intensely desired to serve the Lord.
