The Nectar of Devotion – CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN – BREATHING HEAVILY

BREATHING HEAVILY

As far as breathing heavily is concerned, it is stated, “Lalitā [one of the gopīs] is just like a cātakī bird, which only takes water falling directly from the rain cloud and not from any other source.” In this statement Kṛṣṇa is compared to the dark cloud, and Lalitā is compared to the cātakī bird seeking only Kṛṣṇa’s company. The metaphor continues to say, “As a heavy wind sometimes disperses a mighty cloud, so the heavy breath from Lalitā’s nostrils caused her to miss Kṛṣṇa, who had disappeared by the time she recovered herself.”
