reme rameso vraja-sundaribhir
In this way Lord Krsna, the original Lord Narayana, master of the goddess of fortune, took pleasure in the company of the young women of Vraja by embracing them, caressing them and glancing lovingly at them as He smiled His broad, playful smiles. It was just as if a child were playing with his own reflection.
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura comments as follows on this verse: “Lord Krsna alone is the Supreme Absolute Truth, and His potencies are unlimited. All these potencies, taking personal forms, engage Lord Krsna in His pastimes. Just as the opulent manifestation of His one supreme transcendental potency manifests all the countless potencies of the Lord, so in the rasa dance Krsna manifests Himself as many times as there are various potencies represented by the gopis. Everything is Krsna, but by His desire His spiritual energy Yoga-maya manifests the gopis. When His internal potency Yoga-maya thus produces such pastimes for the enhancement of His transcendental emotions, it is just like a young boy playing with His own reflection. But since these pastimes are created by His spiritual potency, they are eternal and self-manifesting.”
