Yamuna Devi is so inconceivably powerful that although she flows through the
seven oceans which surround the earth’s seven giant islands, she never merges into them as ordinary rivers do. Being an intimate witness to sri Krsna’s wonderful pastimes, she makes those pastimes arise in the hearts of those who take shelter of her. Her dark, shimmering beauty defeats that of even a precious blue sapphire. May that Yamuna Devi, the daughter of Surya-deva, always purify me.
