Cowherd Boy Covering Krsna´s Eyes

In the spiritual world there are five kinds of relationships with the Supreme Lord: adoration, servitorship, friendship, parental affection, and conjugal love.

The cowherd boys of Vrndavana have a transcendental friendship with Krsna on an equal level. By their various activities in different pastimes, all Krsna´s friends give Him transcendental pleasure. Sometimes a confidential friend comes before Him and embraces Him with great affection and love. Another friend then comes up from the rear and covers Krsna’s eyes with his hands. Krsna always feels very happy by such dealings with His confidential friends.

In the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Sukadeva Gosvami says: “My dear King, Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead to the learned transcendentalist, He is the supreme happiness for the impersonalist, He is the supreme worshipable Deity for the devotee, and He is just like an ordinary boy to one who is under the spell of His illusory energy, maya. And just imagine – these cowherd boys are now playing with the Supreme Person as though they are on an equal level! By this, anyone can understand that these boys must have accumulated heaps of the results of pious activities to enable them to associate with the Supreme Personality of Godhead in such intimate friendship.”
