"[Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī said to Her constant companion Viśākhā:] 'My dear friend, if Kṛṣṇa is unkind to Me, there will be no need for you to cry, for it will not be due to any fault of yours. I shall then have to die, but afterwards please do one thing for Me: to observe My funeral ceremony, place My body with its arms embracing a tamāla tree like creepers so that I may remain forever in Vṛndāvana undisturbed. That is My last request.'"
This verse is Vidagdha-mādhava 2.47.
