ninyur duḥkhena vāsarān
Although the gopīs enjoyed direct association with Kṛṣṇa at night in the rāsa dance, during the day He went about His normal duties, tending His cows in the forest. At that time the minds of the gopīs would run after Him, but the young girls had to stay back in the village and do their own duties. Thus feeling the pain of separation, they would sing about Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s transcendental pastimes.
