The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: So-called friends who show affection for each other only to benefit themselves are actually selfish. They have no true friendship, nor are they following the true principles of religion. Indeed, if they did not expect benefit for themselves, they would not reciprocate.
The Lord here reminds the gopis that in pure loving friendship there is no sense of selfish interest but rather only love for one’s friend.
