As Rāma, when He appeared as Lord Rāmacandra, He killed Rāvaṇa, rāvāṇāntakara. Mākhana-taskara, and in Vṛndāvana He is known as the butter thief. In His childhood pastime, He used to steal butter from the pots of the gopīs. That was His pleasure pastime, therefore He is called mākhana-taskara, mākhanacora. Gopī-jana-vastra-hari, and He also stole the garments of the gopīs, while they were taking bath. This is very confidential. Actually the gopīs wanted Kṛṣṇa. They prayed to Kātyāyani-devī, goddess Kātyāyani, because He was attractive to all the girls of His age, so they wanted Kṛṣṇa as husband. So, superficially, Kṛṣṇa was of the same age, and how He could be husband for all the gopīs? But He accepted. Because the gopīs wanted to become wives of Kṛṣṇa, therefore Kṛṣṇa accepted their proposal. In order to show them the mercy, He stole the garments, because a husband can take away the covering of wife's bodily garment. Nobody (else) can touch it. So that is the purpose, but people do not know. Therefore Kṛṣṇa-lila has to be heard from a realized soul, or this portion should be avoided. Otherwise we shall misunderstand that Kṛṣṇa took away the garments, and He was very much fallen, woman-hunter, like that. Not that. He is Supreme Lord. He fulfills the desire of every devotee. So Kṛṣṇa had no business to see the gopīs naked, but because they wanted to become wife, so He fulfilled their desire. A token, "Yes, I am your husband, I have taken your garment. Now you take your garment and go home." Therefore He is known as gopī-jana-vastra-hari. Brajera rākhāla, gopa-vṛnda-pāla, citta-hārī vaṁśī-dhārī. Brajera-rākhāla, the cowherd boy in Vṛndāvana, and gopa-vṛnda-pāla, His object was how to satisfy the cowherds men, including His father, uncle, they were all keeping cows, to please them. So He's gopa-vṛnda-pāla. Citta-hārī vaṁśī-dhārī, and when He was playing the flute, it was taking the heart of everyone, citta-hārī. He was taking away the heart of everyone. Yogīndra-vandana, in spite of Kṛṣṇa's playing as a small cowherd boy in Vṛndāvana, just like the village boy making jokes with His friends, but still, He is yogīndra-vandana. Yogīndra means greatest yogi, mystic. Dhyānāvasthita-tad-gatena manasā paśyanti yaṁ yoginaḥ (SB 12.13.1). The yoginaḥ, the meditation, whom they are trying to find out? This Kṛṣṇa. They are trying to find out Kṛṣṇa. So unless they come to the point of concentrating their mind on Kṛṣṇa, their yogic principle, or mystic power, is baffled. Yoginām api sarveṣāṁ mad-gata-antara (BG 6.47). Yogi, first-class yogi, must keep always Kṛṣṇa within his heart. That is perfection of yoga. Therefore it is called yogīndra-vandana, śrī-nanda-nandana, braja-jana-bhaya-hārī. Although He is worshiped by the great mystics, still He lives in Vṛndāvana as Son of Nanda Maharaja, and the residents of Vṛndāvana, they feel safe and sound under protection of Kṛṣṇa. Navīna nīrada, rūpa manohara, mohana-vaṁśī-vihārī. Navīna nīrada, nīrada means cloud, His complexion is just like new cloud. New cloud, blackish, rūpa. Still He is so beautiful. Generally black is not considered very beautiful within this material world, but because His body is transcendental, even He is blackish, He is the universally attractive. Rūpa manohara. Mohana-vaṁśī-vihārī, simply when He stands with His flute, He, even though He is blackish, He becomes so attractive to everyone. Yaśodā-nandana, kaṁsa-nisūdana, He is very much celebrated as the Son of Mother Yaśodā, He is the killer of Kaṁsa, and nikuñja-rāsa-vilāsī, and He used to dance, rasa dance, in the nikuñja, vaṁśī-vaṭa, nikuñja. Kadamba-kānana, rāsa-parāyaṇa, there are many kadamba trees. Kadamba is a kind of flower that is especially grown in Vṛndāvana, very fragrant and beautiful, solid flower, round. So Kadamba-kānana, He used to enjoy His rasa dance underneath the tree of this kadamba. Ānanda-vardhana prema-niketana, phula-śara-yojaka kāma. So He was exciting the lusty desires of the gopīs, and increasing their transcendental bliss. Ānanda-vardhana prema-niketana, because He is the reservoir of all pleasure. The gopīs used to come to enjoy because He is the reservoir of all pleasure. Just like we go to take water from a lake where there is water. Similarly, if we want actually blissful life, then we shall draw it from the reservoir of all pleasure, Kṛṣṇa. Ānanda-vardhana, that pleasure will increase. The material pleasure will decrease, you cannot enjoy for a long time, it will decrease, but spiritual pleasure, if you want to draw it from the reservoir of all pleasure, Kṛṣṇa, then it will increase. Your pleasure potency will increase, and you will get more and more pleasure. As you increase your pleasure potency, or desire, the supply is also incessant. There is no limit. Phula-śara-yojaka kāma, He is the transcendental cupid. Cupid, with his bows and arrow, he increases the lusty desires of the material world. Similarly in the spiritual world, He is the supreme cupid. He was increasing the lusty desires of the gopīs. They used to come there, and both of them, there was no decrease. They were increasing their desire, and Kṛṣṇa was supplying them, without any material concept of life. They were simply dancing, that's all. Gopāṅganā-gaṇa, citta-vinodana, samasta-guṇa-gaṇa-dhāma. He's especially attractive for the gopāṅganā. Gopāṅganā means the dancers of vraja-dhama. Gopāṅgaṇa-gaṇa, citta-vinodana, they were simply absorbed in Kṛṣṇa's thought. They were so much became attracted by, attached to Kṛṣṇa, they could not give up His existence of His form within the heart for a moment, citta-vinodana, He captured the heart of the gopī, citta-vinodana. Samasta-guṇa-gaṇa-dhāma, He is the reservoir of all transcendental qualities. Yamunā-jīvana, keli-parāyaṇa, mānasa-candra-cakora. Mānasa-candra-cakora, there is a bird which is known as cakora. He looks toward the moonshine. Similarly, He was the moon amongst the gopīs, and they were simply looking after Him. And He is the life of the river Yamunā, because He used to enjoy jumping over the river of Yamunā. Nāma-sudhā-rasa, gāo kṛṣṇa-yaśa, rākho vacana. So Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura is requesting everyone, "Now you chant all these different names of the Lord, and save me." Rākho vacana mano: "My dear mind, please keep my word.
