Shri Venu Geet: Twentieth Shloka

Lord Krishna Roams in the Forest of Vrindavan

evam-vidha bhagavato ya vrndavana-carinah

varnayanto mitho gopyah kridas tan-mayatam yayuh ||

(SB. 10.21.20)


The Gopis Narrating Krishna's Pastimes

Meaning: Parikshit! There is not one but several such lilas (divine plays) of Shri Krishna who wanders in the forest of Vrindavana. The gopis are constantly engaged in discussing these playful dalliances amongst themselves, and get totally absorbed in them.The Lord's pastimes gush forth in their hearts.


Gopis Frolicking with Krishna

Commentary: Essence and Knowledge: The divine play of Krishna's majestic sports which enchants the entire world and is loaded with His infinite madhurya or sweetness, manifests. The cowherdesses or gopis of Vraja are steeped in those pastimes when they describe the spirited antics of Shri Krishna, roaming in the earthly forest of Vrindavan. In other words they enter a state of spiritual trance by meditating upon the dark god, and are engrossed in frolicking with Him.
