SB 10.19.15
gah sannivartya sayahne
 saha-ramo janardanah
venum viranayan gostham
 agad gopair abhistutah

It was now late in the afternoon, and Lord Krsna, accompanied by Balarama, turned the cows back toward home. Playing His flute in a special way, Krsna returned to the cowherd village in the company of His cowherd friends, who chanted His glories.

SB 10.19.16
gopinam paramananda
 asid govinda-darsane
ksanam yuga-satam iva
 yasam yena vinabhavat

The young gopis took the greatest pleasure in seeing Govinda come home, since for them even a moment without His association seemed like a hundred ages.

After saving the cowherd boys from the blazing forest fire, Krsna saved the cowherd girls from the blazing fire of separation from Him. The gopis, headed by Srimati Radharani, have the greatest love for Krsna, and even a single moment’s separation from Him seems like millions of years to them. The gopis are the greatest devotees of God, and their specific pastimes with Krsna will be described later in this work.

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Nineteenth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “Swallowing the Forest Fire.”
