- yatra nitya-vayo-rūpāḥ
- śyāmā viraja-vāsasaḥ
- bhrājante rūpavan-nāryo
- hy arcirbhir iva vahnayaḥ
yatra—in that city; nitya-vayaḥ-rūpāḥ—who were ever beautiful and young; śyāmāḥ—possessing the quality of śyāmā; viraja-vāsasaḥ—always dressed with clean garments; bhrājante—glitter; rūpa-vat—well decorated; nāryaḥ—women; hi—certainly; arcirbhiḥ—with many flames; iva—like; vahnayaḥ—fires.
Everlastingly beautiful and youthful women, who were dressed with clean garments, glittered in the city like fires with flames. They all possessed the quality of śyāmā.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura gives a hint of the quality of the śyāmā woman.
- śīta-kāle bhaved uṣṇā
- uṣma-kāle suśītalāḥ
- stanau sukaṭhinau yāsāṁ
- tāḥ śyāmāḥ parikīrtitāḥ
A woman whose body is very warm during the winter and cool during the summer and who generally has very firm breasts is called śyāmā.
