gopas tam anvasajjanta
nandadyah sakatais tatah
Led by Nanda Maharaja, the cowherd men followed behind Lord Krsna in their wagons. The men brought along many offerings for the King, including clay pots filled with ghee and other milk products.
gopyas ca dayitam krsnam
[With His glances] Lord Krsna somewhat pacified the gopis, and they also followed behind for some time. Then, hoping He would give them some instruction, they stood still.
tas tatha tapyatir viksya
santvayam asa sa-premair
ayasya iti dautyakaih
As He departed, that best of the Yadus saw how the gopis were lamenting, and thus He consoled them by sending a messenger with this loving promise: “I will return.”
yavad alaksyate ketur
yavad renu rathasya ca
Sending their minds after Krsna, the gopis stood as motionless as figures in a painting. They remained there as long as the flag atop the chariot was visible, and even until they could no longer see the dust raised by the chariot wheels.
