Lord Kṛṣṇa's transcendental body was decorated with peacock feathers and flowers and painted with forest minerals, and His bamboo flute loudly and festively resounded. As He called out to His calves by name, His cowherd boyfriends purified the whole world by chanting His glories. Thus Lord Kṛṣṇa entered the cow pasture of His father, Nanda Mahārāja, and the sight of His beauty at once produced a great festival for the eyes of all the cowherd women.
According to Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī and Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, the gopīs mentioned here are the elder cowherd ladies such as mother Yaśodā, who loved Kṛṣṇa with parental affection. Kṛṣṇa's cowherd boyfriends were so proud of Kṛṣṇa's wonderful activities that while entering the village they all sang His glories.
