Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.44.15
yā dohane 'vahanane mathanopalepa
gāyanti cainam anurakta-dhiyo 'śru-kaṇṭhyo
dhanyā vraja-striya urukrama-citta-yānāḥ
yaḥ — who (the gopīs); dohane — while milking; avahanane — threshing; mathana — churning; upalepa — smearing; preńkha — on swings; ińkhana — swinging; arbha-rudita — (taking care of) crying babies; ukṣaṇa — sprinkling; mārjana — cleaning; ādau — and so on; gāyanti — they sing; ca — and; enam — about Him; anurakta — very much attached; dhiyaḥ — whose minds; aśru — with tears; kaṇṭhyaḥ — whose throats; dhanyāḥ — fortunate; vraja-striyaḥ — the ladies of Vraja; urukrama — of Lord Kṛṣṇa; citta — by consciousness; yānāḥ — whose acquisition of all desired objects.
The ladies of Vraja are the most fortunate of women because, with their minds fully attached to Kṛṣṇa and their throats always choked up with tears, they constantly sing about Him while milking the cows, winnowing grain, churning butter, gathering cow dung for fuel, riding on swings, taking care of their crying babies, sprinkling the ground with water, cleaning their houses, and so on. By their exalted Kṛṣṇa consciousness they automatically acquire all desirable things.
