When Kṛṣṇa disappeared from the rāsa-sthalī, all the sakhīs started searching for Kṛṣṇa. They began to look here and there; they became mad. They began to follow kṛṣṇa-līlā. One sakhī said, “I am Pūtanā,” while another said, “I am Kṛṣṇa.”
They asked all the trees, “Where is Kṛṣṇa? Where is Kṛṣṇa?”
They started to become mad in separation. But where was Rādhājī? She was sitting in Śṛṅgāra Vaṭa. There, Kṛṣṇa decorated Her hair with many flowers and engaged in many other services. A million gopīs could not steal Kṛṣṇa’s mind. But Kṛṣṇa went to the place where Rādhājī was sitting and decorated Her. Who is this? He is Rādhā-kānta.
