CC Ādi 4.152


অটদি যদ্‌ ভবানহ্নি কাননং
ত্রিটির্যুগায়তে ত্বামপশ্যতাম ।
কুটিলকুন্তলং শ্রীমুখং চ তে
জড় উদীক্ষতাং পক্ষ্মকৃদ্দৃশাম্‌ ॥ ১৫২ ॥


aṭati yad bhavān ahni kānanaṁ
truṭir yugāyate tvām apaśyatām
kuṭila-kuntalaṁ śrī-mukhaṁ ca te
jaḍa udīkṣatāṁ pakṣma-kṛd dṛśām


aṭati — goes; yat — when; bhavān — Your Lordship; ahni — in the day; kānanam — to the forest; truṭiḥ — half a second; yugāyate — appears like a yuga; tvām — You; apaśyatām — of those not seeing; kuṭila-kuntalam — adorned with curled hair; śrī-mukham — beautiful face; ca — and; te — Your; jaḍaḥ — stupid; udīkṣatām — looking at; pakṣma-kṛt — the maker of eyelashes; dṛśām — of the eyes.


[The gopīs said:] “O Kṛṣṇa, when You go to the forest during the day and we do not see Your sweet face, which is surrounded by beautiful curling hair, half a second becomes as long as an entire age for us. And we consider the creator, who has put eyelids on the eyes we use for seeing You, to be simply a fool.”


This verse is spoken by the gopīs in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (10.31.15).
