The legend of the dance of Krishna with a thousand gopis tells that he was beloved of all who knew him. In his village, high and low, young and old held him in their hearts with admiration and friendship.
And each peasant girl, each gopi who saw the divine youth hoped that it would be with her that he would dance. And so one asked him, and another, and another, and to each he gave his promise.
And at the full moon, at the appointed time of the dance, there assembled all the peasant girls or gopis. And then it was that the gentle Krishna seemed to cause a miracle to happen: for each peasant girl danced and believed that it was with her that he danced.
