Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 10 - Chapter 1 - Verse 25


स्वागतं वो महाभागा आस्यतां करवाम किम् ।यन्नो दिद‍ृक्षया प्राप्ता उपपन्नमिदं हि व: ॥ २५ ॥


svāgataṁ vo mahā-bhāgāāsyatāṁ karavāma kimyan no didṛkṣayā prāptāupapannam idaṁ hi vaḥ


[Lord Kṛṣṇa said:] Welcome, O most fortunate ladies. Please sit down and make yourselves comfortable. What can I do for you? That you have come here to see Me is most appropriate.


Just as Śrī Kṛṣṇa welcomed the gopīs who came to dance with Him at night, He similarly welcomed the brāhmaṇas’ wives, whose pure love for Him was proved by their overcoming many hindrances to see the Lord. The word upapannam indicates that although these ladies had rejected their husbands’ orders, their behavior was not at all inappropriate, since their husbands had obviously tried to obstruct their loving service to Lord Kṛṣṇa.
