gayantah—continuously singing; uccaih—very loudly; amum—that one (Lord Sri Krsna); eva—certainly; samhatah—being assembled together; vicikyuh—searched; unmattaka-vat—like those who have become mad; vanat—from one forest; vanam—to another forest; papracchuh—asked about; akasa-vat—like the sky; antaram—within; bahih—outside; bhutesu—in all living entities; santam—existing; purusam—the Supreme Person; vanaspatin—all the trees and plants.
" 'All the gopis assembled to chant the transcendental qualities of Krsna very loudly, and they began to wander from one forest to another like madwomen. They began to inquire about the Lord, who is situated in all living entities internally and externally. Indeed, they even asked all the plants and vegetables about Him, the Supreme Person.' "
This is a quotation from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.30.4). The gopis almost went mad due to Krsna's suddenly leaving the rasa dance. Because the gopis were fully absorbed in thoughts of Krsna, they were imitating His different postures and pastimes. They became very saddened because of His absence, and this incident is explained by Sukadeva Gosvami to Maharaja Pariksit.
