karhicit sa-bala āli sa gopair
gāḥ samāhvayati yatra mukundaḥ
spṛhayatīr vayam ivābahu-puṇyāḥ
The gopīs state here that the sound of Kṛṣṇa’s flute causes even inanimate objects like rivers to become conscious and then stunned in ecstasy. Just as the gopīs could not always be in Kṛṣṇa’s physical association, the rivers could not come to the Lord’s lotus feet. Although they desired the Lord, their movement was checked by ecstasy, and their “arms,” their waves, trembled with love of Godhead.
