Jayapatākā Swami: This is a story told but I don’t know if it is in any śāstra. Generally, the Queens of Dvāraka are devotees, but there is parakīya and svakīyarasa. The svakīya-rasa as wives they don’t want to put their feet dust on their husband, but the Gopīs, they are ready to go to hell for Kṛṣṇa’s headache. I don’t know if this is a true story or not, but we do know that the Gopīs’ love for Kṛṣṇa is higher than that of the Queens of Dvāraka and so, that is what we want to show by this example.
