After Lord Kṛṣṇa left Vṛndāvana, He sent Uddhava to deliver a message to the gopīs. When Uddhava saw the gopīs’ undying devotion for Śrī Kṛṣṇa, he praised their transcendental perfection:

My dear gopīs, the mentality you have developed in relationship to Kṛṣṇa is very, very difficult to attain, even for great sages and saintly persons. You have attained the highest perfectional stage of life. It is a great boon for you that you have fixed your minds upon Kṛṣṇa and have decided to have Kṛṣṇa only, giving up your family, homes, relatives, husbands, and children for the sake of the Supreme Personality. Because your minds are now fully absorbed in Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Soul, universal love has automatically developed in you. I think myself very fortunate that I have been favored, by your grace, to see you in this situation. [Kṛṣṇa, p. 380]
