Being taṭastha śakti, no jīva has the qualification to be a gopī. The gopīs are manifestations of Bhagavān’s svarūpa śakti.
गुरुः शास्त्रं श्रद्धा रुचिरनुगतिः सिद्धिरति मे
यदेतत्तत्सर्वं चरणकमलं राजति ययोः ।
सदा राधाकृष्णावशरणगती तौ मम गतिः ॥
Śrī Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa, whose lotus feet are everything to me — my preceptor (guru), scripture (śāstra), faith (śraddhā), attraction (ruci), service (anugati), and goal (siddhi) — whose lotus eyes are always bathed with streams of tears full of compassion, and who are the shelter of the shelterless, are my constant refuge.
