As far as breathing heavily is concerned, it is stated: "Lalita [one of the gopis] is just like a cataki bird, which only takes water falling directly from the rain cloud and not from any other source." In this statement Krsna is compared to the dark cloud, and Lalita is compared to the cataki bird seeking only Krsna's company. The metaphor continues to say, "As a heavy wind sometimes disperses a mighty cloud, so the heavy breath from Lalita's nostrils caused her to miss Krsna, who had disappeared by the time she recovered herself."
