samarhanam yatra nidhaya kausikas
tatha balis capa jagat-trayendratam
yad va vihare vraja-yositam sramam
sparsena saugandhika-gandhy apanudat
By offering charity to that lotus hand, Purandara and Bali earned the status of Indra, King of heaven, and during the pleasure pastimes of the rasa dance, when the Lord wiped away the gopis’ perspiration and removed their fatigue, the touch of their faces made that hand as fragrant as a sweet flower.
The Puranas call the lotus found in the Manasa-sarovara Lake a saugandhika. Lord Krsna’s lotus hand acquired the fragrance of this flower by coming in contact with the beautiful faces of the gopis. This specific incident, which occurred during the rasa-lila, is described in the Thirty-third Chapter of the Tenth Canto.
