Pebbles Hurt Krsna’s Feet

What do we think of when hear of or see pebbles — babbling brooks, graveled roads, playgrounds, mountainous trekking paths? Ideally they will send our thoughts to Krishna, thinking like the gopis, who thought: ““Oh, Krsna’s feet are so soft! Now He’s walking on the rough ground, and the sharp pebbles are pricking His soles. So He must be feeling some pain.” (Teachings of Queen Kunti, Ch 7)
