It is interseting to note that Arjuna adresses Krishna as Govinda in 
verse 32 ch 1 of BG "  kim no rajyena Govinda..."  and Prabupada 
translates the term as " the object of pleasure for cows and the 
senses".  In this verse Arjuna questions the Lord as to what pleasure is 
therefor him after killing his relatives  etc.
