रिङ्गयामास काप्यङ्घ्री कर्षन्ती घोषनि:स्वनै: ॥ १६ ॥
riṅgayām āsa kāpy aṅghrī
daityāyitvā — imitating a demon (namely Tṛṇāvarta); jahāra — carried away; anyām — another gopī; ekā — one gopī; kṛṣṇa-arbha — of the infant Kṛṣṇa; bhāvanām — who was assuming the mood; riṅgayām āsa — crawled about; kā api — one of them; aṅghrī — her two feet; karṣantī — dragging; ghoṣa — of tinkling bells; niḥsvanaiḥ — with the sounding.
One gopī took the role of Tṛṇāvarta and carried away another, who was acting like infant Kṛṣṇa, while yet another gopī crawled about, her ankle bells tinkling as she pulled her feet.
The gopīs started imitating all of Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes, beginning from His earliest activities as a baby.
