aplutyambhasi kalindya
 jalante codite ’rune
krtva pratikrtim devim
 anarcur nrpa saikatim
gandhair malyaih surabhibhir

Translation:
My dear King, after they had bathed in the water of the Yamuna just as the sun was rising, the gopis made an earthen deity of goddess Durga on the riverbank. Then they worshiped her with such aromatic substances as sandalwood pulp, along with other items both opulent and simple, including lamps, fruits, betel nuts, newly grown leaves, and fragrant garlands and incense.

Purport:
The word balibhih in this verse indicates offerings of clothing, ornaments, food and so on.
