|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 29: Kṛṣṇa and the Gopīs Meet for the Rāsa Dance|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.29.5
duhantyo 'bhiyayuḥ kāścid
dohaḿ hitvā samutsukāḥ
payo 'dhiśritya saḿyāvam
duhantyaḥ — in the middle of milking the cows; abhiyayuḥ — went away; kāścit — some of them; doham — the milking; hitvā — abandoning; samutsukāḥ — extremely eager; payaḥ — milk; adhiśritya — having placed on the stove; saḿyāvam — cakes made of flour; anudvāsya — without removing from the oven; aparāḥ — others; yayuḥ — went.
Some of the gopīs were milking cows when they heard Kṛṣṇa's flute. They stopped milking and went off to meet Him. Some left milk curdling on the stove, and others left cakes burning in the oven.
The eagerness of these cowherd girls, so lovingly devoted to young Kṛṣṇa, is shown here.
