Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
You are not actually the son of the gopī Yaśodā, O friend, but rather the indwelling witness in the hearts of all embodied souls. Because Lord Brahmā prayed for You to come and protect the universe, You have now appeared in the Sātvata dynasty.
The gopīs here imply, "Since You have descended to protect the entire universe, how can You neglect Your own devotees?"
