|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 39: Akrūra's vision|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.39.37
tā nirāśā nivavṛtur
viśokā ahanī ninyur
tāḥ — they; nirāśāḥ — without hope; nivavṛtuḥ — turned back; govinda-vinivartane — of Govinda's returning; viśokāḥ — extremely sorrowful; ahanī — the days and nights; ninyuḥ — they spent; gāyantyaḥ — chanting; priya — of their beloved; ceṣṭitam — about the activities.
The gopīs then turned back, without hope that Govinda would ever return to them. Full of sorrow, they began to spend their days and nights chanting about the pastimes of their beloved.
