Narada coined the phrase, "Parama Bhakti" (supreme devotion) to describe the devotion of the Gopikas. These supreme devotees regarded the Lord as their companion and most precious treasure. So intense was their devotion that they used to go about as highly intoxicated persons, unmindful of the world. On hearing the music of Krishna's flute, they rushed to the forest in search of Krishna, oblivious of everything. The Gopikas realised that Jnana (supreme wisdom) lay in experiencing oneness with the Divine. In their feeling of oneness with the Divine, they made no distinction between the animate and the inanimate. They saw the Divine in everything.
