dasi-sata api vibhor vidadhuh sma dasyam
Although the Supreme Lord’s queens each had hundreds of maidservants, they chose to personally serve the Lord by approaching Him humbly, offering Him a seat, worshiping Him with excellent paraphernalia, bathing and massaging His feet, giving Him pan to chew, fanning Him, anointing Him with fragrant sandalwood paste, adorning Him with flower garlands, dressing His hair, arranging His bed, bathing Him and presenting Him with various gifts.
Srila Sridhara Svami explains that Sukadeva Gosvami is so eager to describe these glorious pastimes of the Lord with His queens that he has repeated these verses. That is, text 5 of this chapter is almost identical with text 44 of the Fifty-ninth Chapter in this canto, and text 6 is identical with text 45 of that chapter. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti explains that the term vararhana (“excellent offerings”) indicates that the queens offered the Lord palmfuls of flowers (puspañjali) and palmfuls of jewels (ratnañjali).
