What is the meaning of the word 'Govindaa'?

[Ms. Geetha lahari asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, What is the meaning of the word GOVINDAA. Thank You Swami, At Your divine lotus feet -Geetha lahari.]

Swami replied:-Govinda’ means the cowherd, who always approaches the cows. The word ‘Go’ means not only cow but also the senses of the body. God approaching the senses of human beings like eyes etc., is also Govinda, who is the unimaginable God or Parabrahman mediated by an energetic or human body, called as Incarnation.
