Stealing the garments of the gopikas...

Dear Members,

Recently there was some discussion about Sri A.C. Bhaktivedanta
Prabhupada Swami's description of the gopika vastrApaharaNam 
episode.  Sri Jaisimman of Singapore has kindly sent me the
relevant excerpt from Sri Prabhupada Swami's book on the 
Krishna Leela.  Since the excerpt is long, I have placed it
as a separate file accessible by all bhakt-list members:

We can clearly see by reading this that Sri Prabhupada Swami
has written about this in a most touching manner, without a
hint of offensiveness. Perhaps we can now move on to discussing
another topic.

aDiyEn rAmAnuja dAsan,
