The Supreme Lord approached the gopis in a secluded place as they stood in their ecstatic trance. After embracing each of them and inquiring about their well-being, He laughed and spoke as follows.

Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti comments that Krsna expanded Himself by His vibhuti-sakti to embrace each of the gopis individually, thus waking each of them from her trance. He inquired, “Are you now relieved of your pain of separation?” and laughed to help lighten their spirits.
