“Acting like a thief, Nanda’s broad-chested son, the most handsome person in the world, quickly stole the gopis’ garments. His effulgence made Him very attractive, and the sandal paste anointing His limbs enhanced His beauty.”

    Hare Krishna Prabhuji,

    This is a wonderful example of ‘alliteration’. Sounds so much musical like a dhrupad bandish (composition).

    Would it be an offense if we call it a transcendental tongue twister?

      Not at all. It’s an example of bhakti-yogga being inclusive enough to dovetail even our fondness for tongue twisters.
