!! श्री श्री गोपी गीत !! : Shree Shree Gopi Geet



Shri Krishna began to Play His transcendental flute

Once in Vrindavana on the full moon night of holy Kartik month , Shri Krishna saw the unbroken disk of the full moon glowing with the red effulgence of newly applied vermilion, as if it were the face of the goddess of fortune... He also saw the kumuda lotuses opening in response to the moon’s presence and the forest gently illumined by its rays...The forest was filled with transparent clean waters and cooled by breezes perfumed with the fragrance of lotus flowers growing in the clear lakes... The bees are “kissing” the flowers as they fly here and there drinking nectar... The air is full and heavy with the fragrance of the various blossoms beli, cameli, juhi and others...


Intoxicated bees were humming here and there amidst the rows of lush green trees filled with beautiful fragrant flowers... All the lakes, rivers and hills of the forest resounded with the sweet and melodious cooing of the flocks of various birds... Thus Shri Krishna began to play sweetly on His flute, attracting the minds of the beautiful-eyed gopis...




When the young women of Vrndavana heard Krishna’s flute song, which arouses romantic feelings, their minds were captivated by the Lord...They went to where their lover waited, each unknown to the others, moving so quickly that their earrings swung back and forth. Some of the gopis were milking cows when they heard Shri Krishna’s flute... They stopped milking and went off to meet Him... Some left milk curdling on the stove, and others left cakes burning in the oven...


Some of them were getting dressed, feeding milk to their infants or rendering personal service to their husbands, but they all gave up these duties and went to meet Shri Krishna... Other gopis were taking their evening meals, washing themselves, putting on cosmetics or applying kajjala to their eyes... But all the gopis stopped these activities at once and, though their clothes and ornaments were in complete disarray, rushed off to Krishna...Their husbands, fathers, brothers and other relatives tried to stop them, but Krishna had already stolen their hearts. Enchanted by the sound of His flute, they refused to turn back...




Each gopi thinks that the flute song is a representative of Shri Krishna... Shri Krishna has sent the representative in the form of this song which enters their ears and steals their minds and hearts... Then the sound carries those minds and hearts back to Krishna. When the gopis see that their minds and hearts have been stolen by Shri Krishna, they immediately run after the thief who has stolen them. Their only consideration is to pursue the thief...

Some of the gopis, however, could not manage to get out of their houses, and instead they remained home with eyes closed, meditating upon Him in pure love...

Seeing that the girls of Vraja had arrived, Shri Shyamsundar, greeted them with charming words that bewildered their minds...




Shri Shyamsundar said:
“O most fortunate ladies, welcome.. What may I do to please you? Is everything well in Vraja? Please tell Me the reason for your coming here... This night is quite frightening, and frightening creatures are lurking about. Return to Vraja, slender-waisted girls. This is not a proper place for women... Not finding you at home, your mothers, fathers, sons, brothers and husbands are certainly searching for you. Don’t cause anxiety for your family members...”



“Now you have seen this Vrindavana forest, full of flowers and resplendent with the light of the full moon... You have seen the beauty of the trees, with their leaves trembling in the gentle breeze coming from the Yamuna... So now go back to the cowherd village. Don’t delay. O chaste ladies, serve your husbands and give milk to your crying babies and calves.. On the other hand, perhaps you have come here out of your great love for Me, which has taken control of your hearts. This is of course quite commendable on your part, since all living entities possess natural affection for Me..."



“The highest religious duty for a woman is to sincerely serve her husband, behave well toward her husband’s family and take good care of her children... Transcendental love for Me arises by the devotional processes of hearing about Me, seeing My Deity form, meditating on Me and faithfully chanting My glories... The same result is not achieved by mere physical proximity. So please go back to your homes...”


Hearing these unpleasant words spoken by Govinda, the gopis became morose... Their great hopes were frustrated and they felt insurmountable anxiety... Their heads hanging down and their heavy, sorrowful breathing drying up their reddened lips, the gopis scratched the ground with their toes... Tears flowed from their eyes, carrying their kajjala and washing away the vermilion smeared on their breasts. Thus they stood, silently bearing the burden of their unhappiness...


Although Shri Krishna was their beloved, and although they had abandoned all other objects of desire for His sake, He had been speaking to them unfavorably... Nonetheless, they remained unflinching in their attachment to Him... Stopping their crying, they wiped their eyes and began to speak, their voices stammering with agitation...


The beautiful gopis said:
“O Shyamsundar, You should not speak in this cruel way. Do not reject us, who have renounced all material enjoyment to render devotional service to Your lotus feet... Reciprocate with us, O stubborn one, Our dear Krishna, as an expert in religion You have advised us that the proper religious duty for women is to faithfully serve their husbands, children and other relatives... We agree that this principle is valid, but actually this service should be rendered to You... After all, O Lord, You are the dearmost friend of all embodied souls. You are their most intimate relative and indeed their very Self...”


“O beloved Krishna, Until today our minds were absorbed in household affairs, but You easily stole both our minds and our hands away from our housework... Now our feet won’t move one step from Your lotus feet. How can we go back to Vraja? What would we do there..?”



“O Kanhaiyaa, please show us mercy. To approach Your lotus feet we abandoned our families and homes, and we have no desire other than to serve You... Our hearts are burning with intense desires generated by Your beautiful smiling glances. O jewel among men, please make us Your maidservants...”


“O Govind, Seeing Your face encircled by curling locks of hair, Your cheeks beautified by earrings, Your lips full of nectar, and Your smiling glance, and also seeing Your two imposing arms,...which take away our fear, and Your chest, which is the only source of pleasure for the goddess of fortune, we must become Your maidservants...”


“Dear Manmohan, what woman in all the three worlds wouldn’t deviate from religious behavior when bewildered by the sweet, drawn-out melody of Your flute...? Your beauty makes all three worlds auspicious... Indeed, even the cows, birds, trees and deer manifest the ecstatic symptom of bodily hair standing on end when they see Your beautiful form...”


Smiling upon hearing these despondent words from the gopis, Shri Krishna, the supreme master of all masters of mystic yoga, mercifully enjoyed with them, although He is self-satisfied... Among the assembled gopis, the infallible Shri Krishna appeared just like the moon surrounded by stars... He whose activities are so magnanimous made their faces blossom with His affectionate glances, and His broad smiles revealed the effulgence of His jasmine-bud-like teeth...


As the gopis sang His praises, that leader of hundreds of women sang loudly in reply... He moved among them, wearing His Vaijayanti garland, beautifying the Vrndavana forest...



Shri Krishna went with the gopis to the bank of the Yamuna, where the sand was cooling and the wind, enlivened by the river’s waves, bore the fragrance of lotuses... There Shri Krishna threw His arms around the gopis and embraced them... He aroused Cupid in the beautiful young ladies of Vraja by touching their hands, hair, belts and breasts, by playfully scratching them with His fingernails, and also by joking with them, glancing at them and laughing with them... In this way the Lord enjoyed His pastimes...

The gopis became proud of themselves for having received such special attention from Shri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and each of them thought herself the best woman on earth...

Shri Kesava, seeing the gopis too proud of their good fortune, wanted to relieve them of this pride and show them further mercy. Thus He immediately disappeared...

When Shri Shyamsundar disappeared so suddenly, the gopis felt great sorrow at losing sight of Him, like a group of female elephants who have lost their mate... Singing loudly of Shyamsundar, they searched for Him throughout the Vrindavana forest like a band of madwomen... They even asked the trees about Him, who as the Supersoul is present inside and outside of all created things, just like the sky...


Gopies searching for their beloved Shyamsundar

"O asvattha tree, O plaksa, O nyagrodha, have you seen Krishna..? That son of Nanda Maharaja has gone away after stealing our minds with His loving smiles and glances..."


             
"O kurabaka tree, O asoka, O naga, punnaga and campaka, has Balarama’s younger brother, whose smile removes the audacity of all proud women, passed this way...?"


"O most kind tulasi, to whom the feet of Govinda are so dear, have you seen that infallible one walk by, wearing you and encircled by swarms of bees...?"



"O cuta, O priyala, O panasa, asana and kovidara, O jambu, O arka, O bilva, bakula and amra, O kadamba and nipa and all you other plants and trees living by the banks of the Yamuna who have dedicated your very existence to the welfare of others, we gopis have lost our minds, so please tell us where Krishna has gone..."


"O trees, Tell us where are our's beloved Krishna....O trees, we see that you are bowing down... When the younger brother of Rama walked by here, followed by intoxicated bees swarming around the tulasi manjaris decorating His garland, did He acknowledge your obeisances with His affectionate glances? He must have been resting His arm on the shoulder of His beloved and carrying a lotus flower in His free hand..."


After that all the gopies talked among themselves : "Let us ask these creepers about Krishna... Even though they are embracing the arms of their husband, this tree, they certainly must have been touched by Krishna’s fingernails, since out of joy they are manifesting eruptions on their skin."

 Having spoken these words, the gopis, distraught from searching for Krishna, began to act out His various pastimes, fully absorbed in thoughts of Him.
 
All Gopies began to act out Krishna's various passtimes

One gopi imitated Putana, while another acted like infant Krishna and pretended to suck her breast... Another gopi, crying in imitation of infant Krishna, kicked a gopi who was taking the role of the cart demon, Sakatasura...


One gopi climbed on another’s shoulders and, putting her foot on the other’s head, said, "Go away from here, O wicked snake! You should know that I have taken birth in this world just to punish the envious..."


Then another gopi spoke up: "My dear cowherd boys, look al this raging forest fire! Quickly close your eyes and I will easily protect you..."


One gopi took the role of Trnavarta and carried away another, who was acting like infant Krishna, while yet another gopi crawled about, her ankle bells tinkling as she pulled her feet...


Two gopis acted like Shri Balrama and Shri Krishna in the midst of several others, who took the role of cowherd boys... One gopi enacted Krishna’s killing of the demon Vatsasura, represented by another gopi, and a pair of gopis acted out the killing of Bakasura...


When one gopi perfectly imitated how Krishna would call the cows who had wandered far away,... how He would play His flute and how He would engage in various sports, the others congratulated her with exclamations of "Well done! Well done!.."


One gopi tied up her slender companion with a flower garland and said, "Now I will bind this boy who has broken the butter pots and stolen the butter...". The second gopi then covered her face and beautiful eyes, pretending to be afraid...


While the gopis were thus imitating Shri Krishna’s pastimes and asking Vrndavana’s creepers and trees where Krishna, the Supreme Soul, might be, they happened to see His footprints in a corner of the forest...And then, In search of Shri Krishna, the gopis then entered the depths of the forest as far as the light of the moon shone. But when they found themselves engulfed in darkness, they decided to turn back...


Their minds absorbed in thoughts of Him, they conversed about Him, acted out His pastimes and felt themselves filled with His presence... They completely forgot about their homes as they loudly sang the glories of Krishna’s transcendental qualities...

The gopis again came to the bank of the Kalindi. Meditating on Krishna and eagerly hoping He would come, they sat down together to sing of Him...


{ All of you can listen first 9 verses of  this divine Gopi Geet sung by "Shrimati Chandrakanta Dasi" }


Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.1)
"O beloved Krishna, Your birth in the land of Vraja has made it exceedingly glorious, and thus Indira, the goddess of fortune, always resides here... It is only for Your sake that we, Your devoted servants, maintain our lives. We have been searching everywhere for You, so please show Yourself to us..."


Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.2)


"O Lord of love Mohana, in beauty Your glance excels the whorl of the finest, most perfectly formed lotus within the autumn pond... O bestower of benedictions, You are killing the maidservants who have given themselves to You freely, without any price. Isn’t this murder...?"

Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.3)  

"O greatest of personalities Krishna, You have repeatedly saved us from all kinds of danger—from poisoned water, from the terrible man-eater Agha, from the great rains, from the wind demon, from the fiery thunderbolt of Indra, from the bull demon and from the son of Maya Danava..."
 
Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.4)

"O Beloved Shyamsundar! You are not actually the son of the gopi Yasoda, O friend, but rather the indwelling witness in the hearts of all embodied souls... Because Lord Brahma prayed for You to come and protect the universe, You have now appeared in the Satvata dynasty..."

  Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.5)
"O best of the Vrsnis Shri Krishna! Your lotuslike hand, which holds the hand of the goddess of fortune, grants fearlessness to those who approach Your feet out of fear of material existence... O lover, please place that wish-fulfilling lotus hand on our heads..."


 Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.6)

"O beloved Krishna! You who destroy the suffering of Vraja’s people, O hero of all women, Your smile shatters the false pride of Your devotees... Please, dear friend, accept us as Your maidservants and show us Your beautiful lotus face..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.7)

"O Saawariya! Your lotus feet destroy the past sins of all embodied souls who surrender to them... Those feet follow after the cows in the pastures and are the eternal abode of the goddess of fortune... Since You once put those feet on the hoods of the great serpent Kaliya, please place them upon our breasts and tear away the lust in our hearts..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.8)

"O lotus-eyed one, Your sweet voice and charming words, which attract the minds of the intelligent, are bewildering us more and more... Our dear hero, please revive Your maidservants with the nectar of Your lips..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.9)
"O Krishna! The nectar of Your words and the descriptions of Your activities are the life and soul of those suffering in this material world... These narrations, transmitted by learned sages, eradicate one’s sinful reactions and bestow good fortune upon whoever hears them. These narrations are broadcast all over the world and are filled with spiritual power... Certainly those who spread the message of Godhead are most munificent..."


  Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.10)

"O Kanha! Your smiles, Your sweet, loving glances, the intimate pastimes and confidential talks we enjoyed with You—all these are auspicious to meditate upon, and they touch our hearts. But at the same time, O deceiver, they very much agitate our minds."

Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.11)


"Dear Krishna, dear lover, when You leave the cowherd village to herd the cows, our minds are disturbed with the thought that Your feet, more beautiful than a lotus, will be pricked by the spiked husks of grain and the rough grass and plants..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.12)

"O Shyamsundar! At the end of the day You repeatedly show us Your lotus face, covered with dark blue locks of hair and thickly powdered with dust.. Thus, O hero, You arouse lusty desires in our minds..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.13)
'O Kesava! Your lotus feet, which are worshiped by Lord Brahma, fulfill the desires of all who bow down to them... They are the ornament of the earth, they give the highest satisfaction, and in times of danger they are the appropriate object of meditation... O lover, O destroyer of anxiety, please put those lotus feet upon our breasts..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.14)


"O Manmohan! , kindly distribute to us the nectar of Your lips, which enhances conjugal pleasure and vanquishes grief... That nectar is thoroughly relished by Your vibrating flute and makes people forget any other attachment..."


Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.15)


"O Govind ! When You go off to the forest during the day, a tiny fraction of a second becomes like a millennium for us because we cannot see You... And even when we can eagerly look upon Your beautiful face, so lovely with its adornment of curly locks, our pleasure is hindered by our eyelids, which were fashioned by the foolish creator..."


Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.16)


"Dear Acyuta ! You know very well why we have come here... Who but a cheater like You would abandon young women who come to see Him in the middle of the night, enchanted by the loud song of His flute..? Just to see You, we have completely rejected our husbands, children, ancestors, brothers and other relatives..."


Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.17)


"O Kanhaiyaa! Our minds are repeatedly bewildered as we think of the intimate conversations we had with You in secret, feel the rise of lust in our hearts and remember Your smiling face.., Your loving glances and Your broad chest, the resting place of the goddess of fortune. Thus we experience the most severe hankering for You..."

Shrimad Bhagwatam  (10.31.18)


"O beloved Krishna!  Your all-auspicious appearance vanquishes the distress of those living in Vraja’s forests... Our minds long for Your association. Please give to us just a bit of that medicine, which counteracts the disease in Your devotees’ hearts..."


Shrimad Bhagwatam (10.31.19)


"O dearly beloved Shyamsundar! Your lotus feet are so soft that we place them gently on our breasts, fearing that Your feet will be hurt... Our life rests only in You. Our minds, therefore, are filled with anxiety that Your tender feet might be wounded by pebbles as You roam about on the forest path..."


Having thus sung and spoken their hearts out in various charming ways, the gopis began to weep loudly. They were very eager to see Shri Shyamsundar... Then Shri Shyamsundar, a smile on His lotus face, appeared before the gopis... Wearing a garland and a yellow garment, He directly appeared as one who can bewilder the mind of Cupid, who himself bewilders the minds of ordinary people...



When the gopis saw that their dearmost Krishna had returned to them, they all stood up at once, and out of their affection for Him their eyes bloomed wide... It was as if the air of life had reentered their bodies...


One gopi joyfully took Krishna’s hand between her folded palms, and another placed His arm, anointed with sandalwood paste, on her shoulder...


A slender gopi respectfully took in her joined hands the betel nut He had chewed, and another gopi, burning with desire, put His lotus feet on her breasts...


One gopi, beside herself with loving anger, bit her lips and stared at Him with frowning eyebrows, as if to wound Him with her harsh glances...


Another gopi looked with unblinking eyes upon His lotus face, but even after deeply relishing its sweetness She did not feel satiated, just as mystic saints are never satiated when meditating upon the Lord’s feet...


All the gopies enjoyed the greatest festivity when they saw their beloved Shyamsundar again... They gave up the distress of separation, just as people in general forget their misery when they gain the association of a spiritually enlightened person...




The almighty Lord Shri Shyamsundar then took the gopis with Him to the bank of the Kalindi, who with the hands of her waves had scattered piles of soft sand upon the shore... In that auspicious place the breeze, bearing the fragrance of blooming kunda and mandara flowers, attracted many bees, and the abundant rays of the autumn moon dispelled the darkness of night...


Shri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, for whom the great masters of mystic meditation arrange a seat within their hearts, took His seat in the assembly of gopis... His transcendental body, the exclusive abode of beauty and opulence within the three worlds, shone brilliantly as the gopis worshiped Him...


Shri Shyamsundar had awakened romantic desires within the gopis, and they honored Him by glancing at Him with playful smiles, gesturing amorously with their eyebrows, and massaging His hands and feet as they held them in their laps... Even while worshiping Him, however, they felt somewhat angry, and thus they addressed Him as follows...


The gopi said:
 "Some people reciprocate the affection only of those who are affectionate toward them, while others show affection even to those who are indifferent or inimical... And yet others will not show affection toward anyone. Dear Krishna, please properly explain this matter to us..."


Shri Shyamsundar said:
"So-called friends who show affection for each other only to benefit themselves are actually selfish... They have no true friendship, nor are they following the true principles of religion... Indeed, if they did not expect benefit for themselves, they would not reciprocate..."

"O My dear slender-waisted gopis, some people are genuinely merciful or, like parents, naturally affectionate... Such persons, who devotedly serve even those who fail to reciprocate with them, are following the true, faultless path of religion, and they are true well-wishers... "


 
"Then there are those individuals who are spiritually self-satisfied, materially fulfilled or by nature ungrateful or simply envious of superiors... Such persons will not love even those who love them, what to speak of those who are inimical... But the reason I do not immediately reciprocate the affection of living beings even when they worship Me, O gopis, is that I want to intensify their loving devotion... They then become like a poor man who has gained some wealth and then lost it, and who thus becomes so anxious about it that he can think of nothing else..."


"O dear gopies, understanding that simply for My sake you had rejected the authority of worldly opinion, of the Vedas and of your relatives, I acted as I did only to increase your attachment to Me... Even when I removed Myself from your sight by suddenly disappearing, I never stopped loving you... Therefore, My beloved gopis, please do not harbor any bad feelings toward Me, your beloved..."


"I am not able to repay My debt for your spotless service, even within a lifetime of Brahma... Your connection with Me is beyond reproach. You have worshiped Me, cutting off all domestic ties, which are difficult to break... Therefore please let your own glorious deeds be your compensation..."


When the cowherd girls heard the Supreme Personality of Godhead Shri Krishna speak these most charming words, they forgot their distress caused by separation from Him... Touching His transcendental limbs, they felt all their desires fulfilled...


After that on the Yamuna's banks only eight year old Shri Krishna began the pastime of the Rasa dance in the company of those jewels among women, the faithful gopies, who joyfully linked their arms together...



The festive Rasa dance commenced, with the gopies arrayed in a circle... Shri Krishna expanded Himself and entered between each pair of gopies, and as that master of mystic power placed His arms around their necks.., each girl thought He was standing next to her alone... The demigods and their wives were overwhelmed with eagerness to witness the Rasa dance, and they soon crowded the sky with their hundreds of celestial airplanes...

Kettledrums then resounded in the sky while flowers rained down and the chief Gandharvas and their wives sang Lord Shri Krishna's spotless glories...




As Sukadeva Gosvami was reciting this story, King Pariksit noticed that some persons seated in the assembly were harboring doubt about the Lord's activities... These doubtful persons were karmis, jnanis, fool, and others who were not devotees of the Lord... In order to clear up their doubts and misconceptions about the affairs of Shri Krishna and the gopies, Maharaja Pariksit, the hearer of Srimad-Bhagvatam, asked Shri Sukadev ji as follows :

King Pariksit asked :
 “O Sukdeva ji, Shri Krishna appeared on the earth to establish the regulative principles of religion and to curb the predominance of irreligion... But the behavior of Shri Krishna and the gopies might encourage irreligious principles in the material world... I am simply surprised that He would act in such a way, Why then did He mix with others’ wives in the dead of night and enjoy dancing, embracing and kissing? According to the Vedic injunctions, this is not allowed... Also, when the gopies first came to Him, He gave instructions to them to return to their homes... To call the wives of other persons or young girls and enjoy dancing with them is certainly abominable according to the Vedas... Why should Shri Krishna have done this? enjoying the company of others’ wives in the dead of night...”


It is clear to the enlightened that these doubts will arise in the minds and hearts of persons unfamiliar with the transcendental pastimes of the Lord... Therefore since time immemorial great sages and enlightened kings like Pariksit Maharaja have openly raised these questions to provide the authoritative answer for all posterity...


Sukdeva Ji immediately replied :
“O King Pariksit, That transgressions of religious principles by the supreme controller testify to His great power... For example, fire can consume any abominable thing; that is the manifestation of the supremacy of fire... Similarly, the sun can absorb water from a urinal or from stool, and the sun is not polluted; rather, due to the influence of the sunshine, the polluted, contaminated place becomes disinfected and sterilized...”


"Lord Shri Krishna’s dealings with the gopies occurred under special circumstances... Most of the gopies in their previous lives were great sages, expert in the study of the Vedas, and when Lord Shri Krishna appeared as Lord Shri Ramacandra they wanted to enjoy his company... Lord Shri Ramacandra gave them the benediction that their desires would be fulfilled when He would appear as Shri Krishna... Therefore the desire of the gopies to enjoy the appearance of Lord Shri Krishna was long cherished... So they approached goddess Katyayani to have Shri Krishna as their husband... There are many other circumstances which also testify to the supreme authority of Shri Krishna and show that He is not bound by the rules and regulations of the material world... In special cases, He acts as He likes to favor His devotees. This is only possible for Him, because He is the supreme controller..."


"Since Lord Shri Krishna is the Supreme Lord dwelling within the gopies, their so-called husbands and all other living beings, what possible sin could there be on His part if He embraces some of the beings He Himself has created...? What fault could there be if the Lord goes with the gopies to a secret place, since He already dwells within the most secret part of every living being, the core of the heart...?"


"Shri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, was already present as the Supersoul within the bodies of the gopies and their husbands... He is the guide of all living entities, as is confirmed in the Katha Upanisad: The Supersoul directs the individual soul to act, and the Supersoul is the actor and witness of all action..."


"Another important point is that none of the gopies who danced with Krishna were in their material bodies...They danced with Shri Krishna in their spiritual bodies. All their husbands thought that their wives were sleeping by their sides... The so-called husbands of the gopies were already enamored with the influence of the external energy of Shri Krishna; so by dint of this very energy they could not understand that their wives had gone to dance with Shri Krishna... What then is the basis of accusing Shri Krishna of dancing with others’ wives? The bodies of the gopies, which were their husbands’, were lying in bed, but the spiritual parts and parcels of Shri Krishna were dancing with Him... Shri Krishna is the supreme person, the whole spirit, and He danced with the spiritual bodies of the gopies. There is therefore no reason to accuse Krishna in any way..."


“One should know with certainty that Shri Krishna had no personal interest in whatever He did for the benediction of the gopies... As stated in the Bhagavad-gita, “na mam karmani limpanti" . Shri Krishna never enjoys or suffers the results of His activities... Therefore it is not possible for Him to act irreligiously. He is transcendental to all religious duties and principles... He is untouched by the modes of material nature. He is the supreme controller of all living entities, either in human society, in the demigod society in heavenly planets, or in lower forms of life... He is the supreme controller of all living entities and of material nature; therefore, He has nothing to do with religious or irreligious principles...”


In conclusion, the gopis became eternally glorious by their behavior in the Lord's temporary absence, and the mutual love between them and the Lord was wonderfully enhanced... This is the perfection of Krishna and His loving devotees...

The Srimad Bhagavatam's Gopi-geet describes an instance in which the gopis themselves performed kirtana with a view to be reunited with the high note of their life.

Krishna had left the gopis after inviting them with his flute song to dance with him in the moonlit forest of Vraja. Searching for him everywhere, in madness they began to sing. In nineteen songs they heralded their heart's necessity to dance with their love. In so doing, they repaired their broken heartstrings that had
frayed from his separation.

In their param kirtana, one gopi sang in praise of the song itself. This song is in praise of songs about the source of all sound, the source of all sound himself, and those who sing his virtues in the ears of the spiritually deaf. It was this gopi's song that so much pleased Shri Chaitanya. When he heard it, he lost all sense of
socioreligious convention.

"I bow to the Lotus Feet of those Gopies,who has the ethernal, uncondtional Love for Supreme Lord Sri Krishna.."

Since Lord Krishna is the Supreme Lord dwelling within the gopies, their so-called husbands and all other living beings, what possible sin could there be on His part if He embraces some of the beings He Himself has created? What fault could there be if the Lord goes with the gopies to a secret place, since He already dwells within the most secret part of every living being, the core of the heart?

thanks soooo much for allthis. Wonderful service you have done here and we can share with others too. MY daughter aged11 heard me reading it out loud and said'that was really nice mom, can you save it somehow!'
