Dohani Kund / दोहनी कुण्ड

This pond is situated south of Gahvaravan and south-west of the village of Chiksauli. The cows were milked here at the time of Krishna's manifest pastimes. This was the cowshed of the many hundred of thousands of cows belonging to Vrishabhanu Maharaja.


One day, Kishori Radhika was watching the cows being milked, and She too desired to milk them. She took a clay pot and proceeded to do so. Mischievous Krishna arrived at that spot and said,
"Sakhi, don't You know how to milk a cow? Come, I will teach You." And He sat down next to Her.
"O Mohan, teach Me," Radhika said, and She placed Herself in front of Him.
"All right. You milk from two teats and I will milk from the other two, and keep looking at Me."
Laughing, Krishna started to milk. Suddenly, He aimed a jet of milk at Radha's face, saturating Her with it. He and the other sakhis started laughing. This charming pastime has been described in the following Brajbhasa poem.[1]
