Srila Rupa Gosvami
Shri Krishnantardhane tasam prashnah
Questions of the Gopis During Shri Krishna’s Disappearance
“Did You see where Madhava went?
He took one Vraja-girl and left.
O friend, we are all cheated.”
“If you want to find Krishna, then
divide into groups of two and go
everywhere searching for Him.”
Saying these words, Krishna,
disguised as a gopi, at once took
Radha’s hand and went with Her
deep into the forest.
May Lord Krishna protect you all.
