THE GOPIS SEARCH FOR KRISHNA A
child is chosen to play Krishna by reciting one Hare Krishna mantra.
The other players represent the gopis. They cover their eyes and count
to 100 while Krishna hides. Then they all begin to search for Him,
calling to Him and chanting His name. The first one to find Him hides
in the same place, quickly and quietly. The next players to find Him
hide there too. The game continues until all the gopis are hiding with
Krishna. Then the gopi who first discovered the hiding place plays
Krishna next. Now He hides and the others try to find him. It’s very
hard not to make a noise or giggle when someone finds Krishna.
