Tam prati shri-radha-vakyam
Srimati Radharani’s Reply

Verse 234

Yes, My friend, I have heard that
Krishna is a debauchee always
searching for new lovers. Still,
My heart trembles with love
for Him. I pacified My heart
with many logical arguments
and was able to chase the love
from it, but then, in the next moment
I found Myself devoured by
the sweet sound of Krishna’s flute.

—Sriman Prabhupada
