gopis

Krishna is often depicted as romancing gopis (female cowherds), but consider……….Krishna and gopa boyfriends. 

(In all seriousness, however, Krishna–since he is an incarnation of Vishnu–is canonically pansexual and often genderfluid.) 

Edit: The name of the plant is the Parijatha, otherwise known as “Night Flowering Jasmine” in English. It’s Krishna’s favorite flower! 

“Thank you for making them happy,” Radha said to Krishna as she gestured to her friends who were all dancing with Krishna as He had replicated Himself so that each gopi could claim a dance with Him.

“Darling, you are the most unselfish woman I know,”

“No, I just know how much it hurts to love you and not be with you,” she replied and hugged him tightly.

“I will always be with you, even if only in your heart,” He said and kissed her forehead.

“I love you,” she said and sighed contentedly as he tightened his arms around her.

“I love you too,” He replied.

“He looks a little sad Radha, do you know what’s wrong?” Vishakha asked Radha

Radha bit her lip and blinked back tears. Krishna had forbidden her from telling the other gopis that he was leaving.

“He’s probably just concentrating,” she replied and turned quickly away.

Vishakha narrowed her eyes, “I don’t think you’re telling the truth,” she accused.

“I am telling as much as I can,” Radha said, “ask him the rest,” she added.

“I will,” Vishakha said with a determined look. 

Jai Shri Krishna!
