Book 10: Thirty-three Chapter (First Half)

Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 33: Verses 38-40

Deluded by His Maya the men of Vraja did not regard Sri Krsna with jealousy; (for) each of them took his womenkind to be present by his side. When the early hours of the morning approached (at the close of a whole night of Brahma) the. Gopis, who were (so) beloved of the Lord, returned to their homes, though reluctantly, with the approval of Sri Krsna (Son of Vasudeva). He who full of reverence hears in the proper order of sequence or recounts the story of the aforesaid amorous pastime of Sri Krsna (who was no other than the all-pervading Lord Visnu) with the women of Vraja is blessed with supreme devotion to the Lord and, becoming a master of his self before long, speedily overcomes lust (which is a malady of the mind).

Thus ends the thirty-third discourse entitled "A Description of the (actual)Rasa-Play", in the first half of Book Ten of the great and glorious Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita.
