Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 29: Verses 26-33
Intercourse with a paramour on the part of a woman of noble pedigree is a bar to heaven, scandalous, mean, a source of trouble, fraught with fear and hateful everywhere. Love for Me is fostered not so much by physical proximity (to Me) as by hearing My praises, looking at Me, meditating on Me or by singing Me glories. Therefore, return home. Sri Suka continued : Hearing the foregoing speech of Sri Krsna (the Protector of cows), which was so unpleasant (to hear), the Gopis felt despondent and, finding their designs frustrated, were plunged into deep anxiety (that could not be easily overcome). Casting down their faces with lips, cherry as a ripe Bimba fruit, parched up by their breaths hot with grief, and scratching the ground with their toe, they stood silent under the heavy load of their sorrow, washing the saffron painted on their breasts with tears mixed with the collyrium of their eyes. Wiping their eyes bedimmed by weeping, the Gopis, who had given up all (other) cravings for the sake of the Lord, full of love as they were (for Him), spoke (thus) to Sri Krsna, their most beloved One-who was talking like one who had no love for them, as though rejecting their offer of love-in a voice choked with mild anger.
