Surrounded by guards, King Yudhisthira’s queens came out on their chariots to see the fun, just as the demigods’ wives appeared in the sky in celestial airplanes. As maternal cousins and intimate friends sprinkled the queens with liquids, the ladies’ faces bloomed with shy smiles, enhancing the queens’ splendid beauty.
The maternal cousins referred to here are Lord Krsna and such brothers of His as Gada and Sarana, and the friends mentioned are such persons as Bhima and Arjuna.
