Çré v raja-maëòala parikramä

Imlétalä At the time of Kåñëa’s pastimes in Vraja, the ancient imlé (tamarind) tree that stood here was enormous. That tree has since disappeared, and a new imlé tree stands in its place. Midway through räsa-lélä, Çré Kåñëa disappeared in order to dispel the other gopés’ pride in their good fortune (saubhägya-mada) and to soothe Priyäjé’s mäna. He followed Priyäjé to Çåìgäravaöa, where He began to decorate Her with flowers. At that time, the other gopés, who were searching for Kåñëa, came closer to the place where Rädhikä and Kåñëa were. Çré Kåñëa requested Priyäjé to leave with Him, but She said, “I am unable to walk. You can carry Me on Your shoulders.” Kåñëa squatted down, indicating that Priyäjé should sit on His shoulders. Just as She went to do this, Kåñëa disappeared again. Now, She also called out in separation, “O Nätha, O Ramaëa!” and fell down unconscious. The other gopés became very distressed to see Her in this condition.
