On the full moon night of the sharad season, Krishna would stand under the Vamsivata tree and play His flute. The infinite love of Krishna’s heart would pour through His beautiful smiling lips into His flute and create the most intoxicating spiritual music. When Krishna would play upon His flute each gopi could hear Krishna personally calling her. The gopis left everything to give happiness to Krishna.
The acaryas explain that the gopis did not want to enjoy Krishna but they wanted to be enjoyed by Krishna. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu explained that the deepest, most complete form of renunciation is the ecstatic love of the gopis.
