One day soon after Krsna had taxed the gopis, Lalita and Visakha conspired to have revenge on Him. Complaining to each other, they said, “We have been used and abused enough; that was unfair and highly rascalish of Krsna. We must give Him the same back, but double.” So, clapping their hands gleefully they got all the gopis together and hid themselves in the forest groves around Dan Nivartan Kunda.

Krsna, who had gotten so cocky by this time was walking around here with only a few of His cowherd friends. The gopis, by sign language, like reflecting the sun in mirrors to each other, surrounded Krsna and His sakhas. Hundreds of gopis grabbed Krsna and His friends, and, tying their sikhas to the tree branches and holding them still, boxed their ears and made them promise never to harass the the gopis again from that day onwards.

Furthermore, they said, “Today You are the one who must pay taxes. So pay up! What do You have to pay with, and who gave You permission to graze Your cows here?”

Krsna meekly said, “We don’t have anything to pay for taxes.”

The gopis said,” You don’t? Why not? This property belongs to Srimati Radharani, Vrndavan’s queen, and for the audacious behaviour that You exhibited by taxing us the other day, for this You have to be punished.  Krsna, You must bow down to Srimati Radharani’s lotus feet and beg Her forgiveness.”

Krsna, seeing that there was no other way out of the situation, slyly looked at His friends and, bowing down to the lotus feet of Srimati Radharani, begged Her forgiveness.
