Krishna is the one who is remembered in this Shrimad Bhagwad shlok by sage Vedvyasa. This is the enchanting shlok from Shrimad Bhagwad. On hearing this shlok, Paramhans Shukdevji went to his father Vedvyasa and requested to narrate him Shrimad Bhagwad Mahapurana. He was extremely influenced by the chanting of this shlok.

It literally means or explains the charisma of Paramavatar. It describes the appearance of God which is truly fascinating. The entire shlok speaks about the grandeur entry of bhagwan in the supreme abode Vrindavan. 

According to this shlok, Shri Krishna is one who wears the crown of peacock feather and who dances in the world and also makes people of the world dance. One who has a beautiful kundal in his ears and Vaijayanti mala (garland) around his neck, who holds a beautiful vanshi (flute) in hands that emits an attractive music. The sound that comes out of the vanshi attracts all the gopas and gopis. This sound makes everyone happy. Finally, with the musical venu geet (divine song) Kanha is entering Vrindavan accompanied by all the cowherd boys. All the gopas are singing his praises.
