gopis. He is an inveterate thief, stealing the hearts of all, and He crushed the Kaliya

These spotless holy names are filled with all of Krishna’s sweet pastimes. He is the King
(purandara - Indra) of all the forests of Vraja. He is the ever-fresh and ever-youthful
lover, always wearing very beautiful garments, attracting the gopis with His bodily
fragrance, and holding the flute to His mouth.

He always protects the Vrajavasis, destroys the demons, and tends Nanda Baba’s cows.
As Govinda He gives pleasure to the cows, the land, gopas, gopis and the senses. As
Madhava He is the husband of the topmost Lakshmi - Shrimati Radhika. He’s always
stealing butter (the prema of the Vrajavasis) to increase the Vrajavasis’ love for Him
and He is the beautiful son of Nanda Baba.

Roaming along the banks of Yamuna, He stole the clothes of the very young gopis.
He is the enjoyer of the rasa dance and is full of mercy. He is most beloved to Shrimati
Radhikarani and is the most expert dancer in Vrindavana. Bhaktivinoda wants to take
shelter of this Krishna!
