After enjoying rasa-lila pastimes, Krishna came here with all the gopis to relax on the banks of the Yamuna where there was always a very cooling breeze. The words ‘dhira samira’ means a ‘gentle breeze’. After resting here for some time, Krishna and the gopis would enter the crystal clear waters of the Yamuna and refresh themselves by swimming
and sporting in the river. After feasting on various forest fruits, Krishna expanded Himself by His yogamaya potency and simultaneously enters the many flower bedecked bowers (kunjas) to lie down on a bed of flower petals next to each gopi. In this way Krishna fulfilled the desire of each gopi, to spend the night holding Krishna in their arms and embracing Him to their hearts content. Krishna had given a promise to the gopis when He stole their garments during the Katyayani-vrata, that in the near future they would be able to enjoy Him as their husband in the forest groves of Vrindavana, thus Krishna fulfilled His promise to the gopis.
In the area of Dhira Samira, there was a forest grove known as Manikarnika and within that grove is the Mana-bhanjana Sthala where Krishna very expertly dissipated the jealous anger of Shrimati Radharani. The word ‘mana’ means ‘jealous anger’ and ‘bhanjana’ means to ‘break’ or ‘terminate’. The bank of the Yamuna at Dhira Samira was a very beautiful place where cool breezes always blew due to the flow of the river and many great Vaishnava saints performed their bhajana and engaged in the worship of their deities in this area.
