Maṇḍala-nṛtya. An Indian dance performed in a circle. It is based on the dance of Kṛṣṇa with the gopīs, in which he moved so rapidly around them that they did not notice a moment when he was absent from any one of them. In the same way, God is available for full union with any one of his devotees in bhakti at any time.
