1. 36

    किं पुनः श्रद्धया भक्त्या कृष्णाय परमात्मने । यच्छन् प्रियतमं किं नु रक्तास्तन्मातरो यथा ।। १०-६-३६ ।।

    What then is to be said of those who had natural devotion and affection for Kṛṣṇa as mothers and who offered Him their breasts to suck or offered something very dear, as a mother offers something to a child? ।। 10-6-36 ।।

  2. 37

    पद्भ्यां भक्तहृदिस्थाभ्यां वन्द्याभ्यां लोकवन्दितैः । अङ्गं यस्याः समाक्रम्य भगवानपिबत्स्तनम् ।। १०-६-३७ ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, is always situated within the core of the heart of the pure devotee, and He is always offered prayers by such worshipable personalities as Lord Brahmā and Lord Śiva.

  3. 38

    यातुधान्यपि सा स्वर्गमवाप जननीगतिम् । कृष्णभुक्तस्तनक्षीराः किमु गावो नु मातरः ।। १०-६-३८ ।।

    She attained the position of a mother in the transcendental world and thus achieved the highest perfection. What then is to be said of the cows whose nipples Kṛṣṇa sucked with great pleasure and who offered their milk very jubilantly with affection exactly like that of a mother? ।। 10-6-38 ।।

  4. 39

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, is the bestower of many benedictions, including liberation [kaivalya], or oneness with the Brahman effulgence. For that Personality of Godhead, the gopīs always felt maternal love, and Kṛṣṇa sucked their breasts with full satisfaction. ।। 10-6-39 ।।

    तासामविरतं कृष्णे कुर्वतीनां सुतेक्षणम् । न पुनः कल्पते राजन् संसारोऽज्ञानसम्भवः ।। १०-६-४० ।।

    Therefore, because of their relationship as mother and son, although the gopīs were engaged in various family activities, one should never think that they returned to this material world after leaving their bodies. ।। 10-6-40 ।।
