It is said that once lord Krishna fell very sick and his health started deteriorating as there was no cure. His devotes were devastated, no one knew how to cure the lord. All the gopis went crying helplessly to lord Krishna . Krishna said that to heal him any of the gopi could wash their feet in water and give the water to drink as medicine. This was shocking for the gopis who were madly in love with him . How could they wash their feet and give the dirty water to Krishna, the eternal love who they adored and worshiped? Who would bear the sin that would cross many lives ! All the gopis and the devotees refused, no one was willing to bear the awful sin and live in hell. When this news reached to Radha ,she came running, unhesitatingly she washed her feet in water and gave the dirty water to Krishna to drink. Gopis warned Radha for the repercussions of living in hell for such an odious, sinful act. Radha replied “it does not matter to me whether I go to hell or heaven , as long Krishna heals. Hearing this Krishna smiled and told the Gopis.” I was testing your love for me. True love transcends sin and sinner. It is the intent that matters.
