" 'What austerities must the gopis have performed? With their eyes they always drink the nectar of the face of Lord Krsna, which is the essence of loveliness and is not to be equaled or surpassed. That loveliness is the only abode of beauty, fame and opulence. It is self-perfect, ever fresh and unique.'
This verse from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.44.14) was spoken by the women of Mathura when they saw Krsna in the wrestling arena.
