After some delay, I’m continuing (part 2 of ?) with a little description of the astonishingly beautiful form of the Personality of Godhead, as described in Srimad Bhagavatam (available atwww.krishna.com and elsewhere),4th Canto, Chapter 24. Lord Siva has been offering a prayer to Lord Narayana, glorifying His gorgeous bodily features. Look a few posts below for the previous entry. These are copied here from www.vedabase.net in hopes that you will be enticed to visit that ocean of nectar. Hare Krishna

The Lord is superexcellently beautiful on account of His open and merciful smile and His sidelong glance upon His devotees. His black hair is curly, and His garments, waving in the wind, appear like flying saffron pollen from lotus flowers. His glittering earrings, shining helmet, bangles, garland, ankle bells, waist belt and various other bodily ornaments combine with conchshell, disc, club and lotus flower to increase the natural beauty of the Kaustubha pearl on His chest.
PURPORT, by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhuapda: The word prahasitāpāńga, referring to Kṛṣṇa‘s smile and sidelong glances at His devotees, specifically applies to His dealings with the gopīs. Kṛṣṇa is always in a joking mood when He increases the feelings of conjugal rasa in the hearts of the gopīs. The conchshell, club, disc and lotus flower can be either held in His hands or seen on the palms of His hands. According to palmistry, the signs of a conchshell, club, lotus flower and disc mark the palms of great personalities and especially indicate the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
