1) O Lord Krsna, please be merciful unto me. When some of the gopis were forcibly prevented from going to You by their husbands, those gopis acutely burned in the great fire of pure love for You. Maddened with their great desire to attain You, those gopis became free from the bonds of material corporal existence.


2) O Lord Krsna, when Sukudeva Gosvami heard King Pariksit's question, the sage became angry and chastised his student, explaining that You are a great a ocean of transcendental glorious qualities. Sukadeva explained that remembrance of You, even if performed with anger, grants great spiritual benefit. O Lord, please remember me.



Based on Verse 2, the question King Pariksit asked was: "The gopis did not know that Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. They accepted Him as a beautiful boy, and considered Him to be their paramour. So how was it possible for them to get freed from the material condition just by thinking of a paramour?"
