Paigaon, the hide and seek pastime

posted in: English

Paigaon (Paigrama, Pai)

 

One day Radha and Krishna were playing hide and seek along with the gopis, and after Krishna went and hid Himself and the gopis couldn’t find Him anywhere.

After searching here and there for a long time, the gopis naturally started to feel separation.

They then began crying out saying.
“We can’t find Him? We can’t find Him?”

Then all of a sudden they arrived at the place where Krishna was hiding and suddenly catching hold of Him they excitedly began shouting.
“We found You, We found You.”

 

Thus the village became known as Pai Grama, the village where the gopis eventually found Krishna.
The word “pai” means to “find” or to “obtain something.”
