|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 8: Talks Between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.203
sakhī vinā ei līlā puṣṭa nāhi haya
sakhī līlā vistāriyā, sakhī āsvādaya
sakhī vinā — without the gopīs; ei līlā — these pastimes; puṣṭa — nourished; nāhi haya — are never; sakhī — the gopīs; līlā — the pastimes; vistāriyā — expanding; sakhī — the gopīs; āsvādaya — taste this mellow.
"Without the gopīs, these pastimes between Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa cannot be nourished. Only by their cooperation are such pastimes broadcast. It is their business to taste the mellows.
