SB 10.47.62
ya vai sriyarcitam ajadibhir apta-kamair
 yogesvarair api yad atmani rasa-gosthyam
krsnasya tad bhagavatah caranaravindam
 nyastam stanesu vijahuh parirabhya tapam

Translation:
The goddess of fortune herself, along with Lord Brahma and all the other demigods, who are masters of yogic perfection, can worship the lotus feet of Krsna only within her mind. But during the rasa dance Lord Krsna placed His feet upon these gopis’ breasts, and by embracing those feet the gopis gave up all distress.


SB 10.47.63
vande nanda-vraja-strinam
 pada-renum abhiksnasah
yasam hari-kathodgitam
 punati bhuvana-trayam

Translation:
I repeatedly offer my respects to the dust from the feet of the women of Nanda Maharaja’s cowherd village. When these gopis loudly chant the glories of Sri Krsna, the vibration purifies the three worlds.

Purport:
Sri Uddhava, having established the glories of the gopis in the previous verses, now directly offers his obeisances to them. According to the Sri Vaisnava-tosani, Sri Uddhava did not offer such respect even to Lord Krsna’s queens in Dvaraka.
