sva-hastaṁ kumatir nyadhāt
ittham — in this manner; bhagavataḥ — of the Personality of Godhead; citraiḥ — wonderful; vacobhiḥ — by the words; saḥ — he (Vṛka); su — very; peśalaiḥ — clever; bhinna — bewildered; dhīḥ — his mind; vismṛtaḥ — forgetting; śīrṣṇi — on his head; sva — his own; hastam — hand; ku-matiḥ — foolish; nyadhāt — placed.
[Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued:] Thus bewildered by the Personality of Godhead’s enchanting, artful words, foolish Vṛka, without realizing what he was doing, placed his hand on his head.
