Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 10.47.37
ya maya kridata ratryam
vane 'smin vraja asthitah
yah -- which women; maya -- with Me; kridata -- who was sporting; ratryam -- at night; vane -- in the forest; asmin -- this; vraje -- in the village of Vraja; asthitah -- remaining; alabdha -- not experiencing; rasah -- the rasa dance; kalyanyah -- fortunate; ma -- Me; apuh -- they achieved; mat-virya -- upon My valorous pastimes; cintaya -- by concentration.
Although some gopis had to remain in the cowherd village and so could not join the rasa dance to sport with Me at night in the forest, they were nonetheless fortunate. Indeed, they attained Me by thinking of My potent pastimes.
