Although newer and newer desires for amorous pastimes arose within the gopiṣ hearts, the Lord's skill at performing thesepastimes was always beyond what the gopīs could imagine. Tasting the transcendental bliss of festive conjugal pastimes far beyondtheir desiress, the gopīs jubilantly offered respectful obeisances to Lord Kṛṣṇa in Vṛndāvana.
