The irresistble lure lies in the gopis’ spontaneous and selfless outpourings of love for Krishna. the gopis are the perfect models for all who are progressing on the path of bhakti-yoga, through which souls attain God through devotional love.
Althogh the rasa-lila represents the loftiest vision supreme love that the Vaishnava traditions possess. It is surprisingly relevant to essential practices in an aspirant’s life of devotion. For example, the maha-mantra-the widely known sacred thirty-two syllable mantra of Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare -is the sonic ‘reenactment’ of the rasa dance. The patterned movement of eight pairs of feminine [Hare] and masculine [Krishna and Rama] names of the divine can be observed in the mantra… When practitioners recite the mantra over and over, the divine names from a circular pattern imitative of the exchange between the feminine and masculine partners in the Rasa dance which is depict in our wall panel of Rasa-lila. The mantra begins and ends with feminine names, enclosing the masculine names, just as the Gopis enguil Krishna when they encircle him during the commencement of the Rasa dance.
