Samanta Panchaka – Gopis Met Krishna Again At This Place After A Long Period of Time

Gopis never saw Krishna after he left Vrindavan for Mathura. They met Sri Krishna again after several years at Samanta Panchaka. Kurukshetra in the Mahabharata was also called Samanta Panchaka because of the five lakes created there by Parshuram Avatar of Bhagwan Vishnu.

A third category of scholars hold that apart from these two conditions, adhi yoga gets fully constituted only when the fourth house (in a natal chart) is occupied by a natural benefactor like Jupiter. However, most modern scholars agree that the presence of benefactions in the sixth, seventh an
