Begged in this way, Lord Balaraama released the Yamunaa. Then He enjoyed in the Yamunaa's waters, as an elephant enjoys with its many wives. When He returned to the shore the Yamuna' approached and gave Him gifts of many blue garments and many ornaments of gold and jewels. Lord Balaraama divided the gifts among the girls, giving some to each gopi. Then He dressed in one of the blue garments and decorated Himself with a necklace of gold and nine kinds of jewels. Then He enjoyed with the gopis as the king of elephants enjoys with its many wives.
