Glory of his Lotus Feet

"How can the fire of material suffering continue to burn hearts of
those who worship the Supreme Lord? The Lord's lotus feet have
performed innumerable heroic deeds, his beautiful nails on His
toes resemble valuable jewels. Effulgence emanating from those
nails resembles cooling moonshine, for it instantly relieves the
suffering within the heart of the pure devotee, just as appearance
of the moon's cooling light relieves the burning heat of the sun."

(Sri Havir Rsi – Srimad Bhagavatam 11.2.54)
