"After conquering the moon and the lotus flower, Krsna wished to capture the doelike gopis. Thus He spread the noose of His beautiful face, and within that noose He placed the bait of His sweet smile to misguide the gopis. The gopis fell prey to that trap and became Krsna's maidservants, giving up their homes, families, husbands and prestige.
