The Gopis of Brindavan lived true and supreme love. They would do everything that was mundane, taking care of husbands, children, family, but their heart was given only to Krishna. That is the way to the ultimate state of love. To them whatever pleased Krishna was good. Even when Krishna left Brindavan, they lived the supreme love that if that pleased Krishna then that is good for them. They went through pain, but that was the way Krishna wanted them to experience the union of divine love. “Your happiness is my happiness. Whatever pleases you pleases me.” This is pure unconditional love that can free us from all bondages and unite us with Krishna forever.
