Krishna and the Gopis Meet for the Rasa Dance

"Immediately upon hearing the vibration of the flute, they [the gopis] all left their respective engagements and proceeded to the spot where Krishna was standing. While they ran very swiftly, their earrings swung back and forth. They all rushed toward the place known as Vamsivata. Some of them were engaged in milking cows, but they left their milking business half finished and immediately went to Krishna." -Excerpt from Krishna Book, Chapter 29
