|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 30: The Gopīs Search for Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.30.18
āhūya dūra-gā yadvat
kṛṣṇas tam anuvartatīm
veṇuḿ kvaṇantīḿ krīḍantīm
anyāḥ śaḿsanti sādhv iti
āhūya — calling; dūra — who were far away; gāḥ — the cows; yadvat — just as; kṛṣṇaḥ — Kṛṣṇa; tam — him; anuvartatīm — one gopī who was imitating; veṇum — the flute; kvaṇantīm — vibrating; krīḍantīm — playing games; anyāḥ — the other gopīs; śaḿsanti — praised; sādhu iti — "excellent!"
When one gopī perfectly imitated how Kṛṣṇa would call the cows who had wandered far away, how He would play His flute and how He would engage in various sports, the others congratulated her with exclamations of "Well done! Well done!"
