Damsels, let us join together and approach Him. Let us invite him to
play with us.
As Krishna is looking at us, let us enter the river and indulge in fun
Of course, we cannot be away from Krishna. Moreover, we cannot control
and bring the boat to the banks. This Krishna is a prince, wearing
ornaments studded with gems.
Is not Krishna a small boy? He may be afraid to venture in the river.
If somehow Yashoda comes to know of our intentions, we will invite her
wrath and threats.
Even though we may keep this adventure of ours secret, ultimately it may
lead us to unpleasant comments. "Damsels" says Krishna, "if you are
talking endlessly like this, the day will dawn. Enough of your
discussions. Come, push this boat into the river."
The Gopis remark: This one is a friend of Tyagaraja. He is not likely
to listen to us.
