One day, when Sūradāsajī was in his kuṭīra, Vallabhācārya’s son, Viṭhalācārya, came to take darśana of Kṛṣṇa. Viṭhalācārya told someone, “Now it is morning and Sūradāsajī will come to take darśana of Kṛṣṇa. You should remove all of Kṛṣṇa’s clothes.” While Viṭhalācārya sat and waited, Sūradāsa came with his vīṇā. Kṛṣṇa was completely naked; He was not decorated at all. There was no vaṁśī also. Viṭhalācārya told the person who removed the clothes, “Now Sūradāsajī will describe Kṛṣṇa’s beauty although it seems that he is externally blind.”
When Sūradāsa had darśana of Kṛṣṇa, he said, “Oh! Kṛṣṇa is so beautiful today. Yaśodā has not combed Your hair today; she has also not applied collyrium on Your eyes. You don’t have the flute in Your hands also. Seeing You in this form, I am completely enchanted.”
Sūradāsajī would describe Kṛṣṇa’s beauty every day. How did Sūradāsajī see Kṛṣṇa’s beauty, although he was blind? The mundane eyes cannot see the form of Kṛṣṇa.
