स्तूयमानोऽनुगैर्गोपै: साग्रजो व्रजमाव्रजत् ॥ ४१ ॥
stūyamāno ’nugair gopaiḥ
sāgrajo vrajam āvrajat
kṛṣṇaḥ — Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa; kamala-patra-akṣaḥ — whose eyes are like lotus petals; puṇya-śravaṇa-kīrtanaḥ — hearing and chanting about whom is the most pious activity; stūyamānaḥ — being glorified; anugaiḥ — by His followers; gopaiḥ — the cowherd boys; sa-agra-jaḥ — together with His elder brother, Balarāma; vrajam — to Vraja; āvrajat — He returned.
Then lotus-eyed Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, whose glories are most pious to hear and chant, returned home to Vraja with His elder brother, Balarāma. Along the way, the cowherd boys, His faithful followers, chanted His glories.
When the glories of Śrī Kṛṣṇa are vibrated, both the speakers and the hearers are purified and become pious.
