Canto 10 Chapter 16 Text 21
tulya-vyathah samanugrhya sucah sravantyah
tas ta vraja-priya-kathah kathayantya asan
krsnanane ‘rpita-drso mrtaka-pratikah
Although the elder gopis were feeling just as much distress as she and were pouring forth a flood of sorrowful tears, they had to forcibly hold back Krsna’s mother, whose consciousness was totally absorbed in her son. Standing like corpses, with their eyes fixed upon His face, these gopis each took turns recounting the pastimes of the darling of Vraja.
