|Radha and the eight chief gopis: Lalita, Vishaka, Champakalata, Chitra-Lekha, Tunga-vidya, Indulekha, Ranga devi and Sudevi.
"The parama-preshtha-sakhis are eight in number, and in the ecstatic dealings of Krishna and Radha they side sometimes with Krishna and at other times with Radharani, just to create a situation in which it appears that they favor one against the other. That makes the exchange of mellows more palatable."
