प्रीत: प्रियतमं दोर्भ्यां सस्वजे प्रेमविह्वल: ॥ २१ ॥
dehaḥ prāṇam ivāgatam
prītaḥ priyatamaṁ dorbhyāṁ
tam — him (Vasudeva); dṛṣṭvā — seeing; sahasā — suddenly; utthāya — getting up; dehaḥ — the same body; prāṇam — life; iva — as if; āgatam — had returned; prītaḥ — so pleased; priya-tamam — his dear friend and brother; dorbhyām — by his two arms; sasvaje — embraced; prema-vihvalaḥ — overwhelmed with love and affection.
When Nanda Mahārāja heard that Vasudeva had come, he was overwhelmed with love and affection, being as pleased as if his body had regained its life. Seeing Vasudeva suddenly present, he got up and embraced him with both arms.
Nanda Mahārāja was older than Vasudeva. Therefore Nanda Mahārāja embraced him, and Vasudeva offered him namaskāra.
