कालिन्द्यां = In Yamuna विषधरपतौ = on the snake king ते नर्तनं = your dance वीक्ष्य = upon seeing नागाः = the snakes (kalinga’s wives) सजलनयनाः = with tearful eyes पत्युः प्राणं = their husband’s life प्रार्थयामासतुः = prayed त्वाम् = to you दृष्टं सर्वैः = who was seen by everyone दत्तजीवं = who gave life उरगपतये = to the snake king
In the river Yamuna when you danced on the head of kaliya, the snake king, his wives prayed to with tears in their eyes. I pray to that Krishna, who was seen by everyone giving life to that snake king, who is dark like a new rain cloud and full of love.
In bhagavata purana it is because of the entreaties of kaliya's wives that Krishna steps down from the snake's head.
