The Bond of Love Between Krishna and the Gopis

They were His best friends. They woke up thinking of Him. He woke up thinking of them. They longed to see Him and He longed to see them. He played His flute and they lost themselves in His music. They chanted His name and He lost Himself in their devotion. He was Krishna and they were the Gopis, the cowherd-maidens of Brindavan. That was the Dwapara Age.

Today, after more than five thousand years have passed, when He dons a different form and a different name - Sathya Sai Baba - He still cannot forget the days He spent with them. He stills remembers with fondness, the innocent, pure and selfless love that their hearts emanated. Ask Him to rate His devotees and the Gopis, without a trace of doubt, will top the charts !

Let us know more about them, in His own words.
