The Gopis and Their yuthas

posted in: DB, English, Kadacha ENG 0

A large group consisting of two kinds of close associates is called a yutha. A yutha is divided into three groups:

same age sakhis (vayasyas),

maidservants (dasis) and

messengers (dutis).

Those who know the eternal fundamental principles of rasa-tattva[1] have further divided the yutha into various sections:

kulas, which are further divided into mandalas;

mandalas, which are divided into vargas;

vargas into ganas;

ganas into samavayas;

samavayas into sancayas;

sancayas into samajas, and

samajas, which are further divided into samanvayas.
