The Nectar of Devotion – CHAPTER THIRTY-THREE – LAMENTATION

LAMENTATION

In the Tenth Canto, seventh chapter, verse 25 of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, there is a description of Kṛṣṇa’s being taken away by the whirlwind demon, Tṛṇāvarta. As Kṛṣṇa was being thus carried up into the sky, all the gopīs began to cry aloud. They approached mother Yaśodā, stating that they could not find the son of Nanda. He had been taken away by a whirlwind. This is an instance of lamentation in ecstatic love.

When Kṛṣṇa was fighting with Kāliya, mother Yaśodā exclaimed, “Kṛṣṇa is now entrapped within the hoods of the Kāliya snake, and yet I am not tattered to pieces! So I must admit how wonderful is the preserving power of this material body!” This is another instance of lamentation in ecstatic love.
