TEXT 217

nijendriya-sukha-hetu kāmera tātparya
kṛṣṇa-sukha-tātparya gopī-bhāva-varya


nija-indriya—of one’s own senses; sukha—of the happiness; hetu—for the reason; kāmera—of lusty desire; tātparya—intention; kṛṣṇa—of Kṛṣṇa; sukha—the happiness; tātparya—intention; gopī-bhāva-varya—the foremost mood of the gopīs.


“Lusty desires are experienced when one is concerned with his own personal sense gratification. The mood of the gopīs is not like that. Their only desire is to satisfy the senses of Kṛṣṇa.
