tam ratrim tatra rajendra
usur vrayaukaso gavah
O best of kings [Pariksit], because the residents of Vrndavana were feeling very weak from hunger, thirst and fatigue, they and the cows spent the night where they were, lying down near the bank of the Kalindi.
Srila Jiva Gosvami points out that although the people were weak from hunger and thirst, they did not drink the milk from the cows present there because they feared it had been contaminated by the serpent’s poison. The residents of Vrndavana were so overjoyed to get back their beloved Krsna that they did not want to go back to their houses. They wanted to stay with Krsna on the bank of the Yamuna so that they could continuously see Him. Thus they decided to take rest near the riverbank.
