Canto 10 Chapter 39 Texts 44-45


bhūyas tatrāpi so ’drākṣīt
stūyamānam ahīśvaram
siddha-cāraṇa-gandharvair
asurair nata-kandharaiḥ

sahasra-śirasaṁ devaṁ

śṛṅgaiḥ śvetam iva sthitam

 

TRANSLATION

The Personality of Godhead whom Akrūra saw had thousands of heads, thousands of hoods and thousands of helmets. His blue garment and His fair complexion, as white as the filaments of a lotus stem, made Him appear like white Kailāsa Mountain with its many peaks.
