Sloka 1:9: 33
tribhuvana kamanam tamAla varNam
ravikaragauravarAmbaram dadhAne |
vijayasakhe ratirastu me anavadyayA ||
In this sloka, Bhishma talks about Lord’s face. He says may I cherish the beautiful curly hair that adorns on the face, that sticks on his forehead because of the sweat in the war (Vapuralaka kulAvRutA). Bhishma envies Arjuna by addressing Sri Krishna as “Vijaya Sakhe”, who in all the three worlds has the perfect Thirumeni, adorned with the Pitambaram that shines likes the golden yellow sun with the hue like the Tamala tree.
