TRANSLATION

Among the Gandharvas I am Viśvāvasu, and I am Pūrvacitti among the heavenly Apsarās. I am the steadiness of mountains and the fragrant aroma of the earth.


PURPORT

In Bhagavad-gītā (BG 7.9) Lord Kṛṣṇa says, puṇyo gandhaḥ pṛthivyāṁ ca: "I am the fragrance of the earth." The original fragrance of the earth is very pleasing and represents Lord Kṛṣṇa. Although unpleasant aromas may be artificially produced, they do not represent the Lord.
