" To awaken their divine attachment
Hari entered Vrindavan playing His flute.
The Svanminis sang about the song of His flute
Whoever is attached to His attributes
Ends up attached to Him."
"Separation is Krishna in the heart.
Union is Krishna in the world."
"They are His divine powers,
They abide in the glades of Vrindavan
For His sheer enjoyment."
"Their love is to be emulated."
"What is profound does not appear before all.
This lila is not openly revealed
because ras only flourishes in concealment."
"The Svaminis are intimate with Gopal.
And experience Him through every door of perception."
"The call of Shri Krishna's flute
Kindles in those women
Who live around the hills and waters of Braja
The spiritual conjugal mood.
"There are others who are nearby but cannot hear.
Lila is replete with purpose and Krishna
Awakens only those whose time has come.
Others simply will not respond to His calling."
"It is a Lila-Invitation.
