FILE INFO
CaptionOne day the gopis came to the riverbank and put aside their clothes to play in the water. Lord Krishna then went there and took the girls clothes, quickly climbing to the top of a kadamba tree. Jokingly, Krishna said, "My dear girls, you may each come here as you wish and take back your garments. I'm telling you the truth and am not joking with you, since I see you're fatigued from executing austere vows. The gopis were embarrassed and did not come out of the water, but their minds were completely captivated by His words. The gopis said, " Dear Krishna, don't be unfair! We know that you are the respectable son of Nanda and that You are honored by everyone in Vraja. You are also very dear to us. Please give us back our clothes. We are shivering in the cold water." However, when the gopis saw that Krishna was strong and determined, they had no alternative but to abide by His order. So they rose from the water covering their private areas with their hands. For young aristocratic girls like the gopis, this kind of embarrassment was worse then death; so by doing this they gave up everything for the pleasure of Lord Krishna. Lord Sri Krishna was completely satisfied by their unalloyed devotion.
