Krsna told the gopis, “Return to your homes and serve your husbands.”
The gopis replied, “Then return our minds back. How can we return without our minds? Our feet will not walk by themselves. You have stolen our minds.”
“When did I steal?”
“Your form has stolen our minds. Playing the flute, You stood in Your three-fold bending form. Your form is supremely auspicious for the world. Seeing Your form, the cows, calves, birds, peacocks, cuckoos, and deer forsake their dharma and adopt another dharma.” The nature of the Yamuna is to flow downstream, but on seeing Krsna and listening to the Venu-gita, the Yamuna flows upstream.
