"Krsna is always surrounded by different potencies, and therefore He is perfect and beautiful. We understand from Brahma-samhita and Skanda Purana that Krsna is always surrounded by many thousands of goddesses of fortune. The gopis are all goddesses of fortune, and Krsna took them hand in hand on the bank of the Yamuna.
"It is said in the Skanda Purana that out of many thousands of gopis, 16,000 are predominant; out of those 16,000 gopis, 108 gopis are especially predominant; out of eight gopis, Radharani and Candravali are predominant; and out of these two gopis, Radharani is the most prominent."

(Krsna Book, Chapter 31)
