Mahanidhi Madan Gopal Das
The mothers of the boys greeted them happily and beautified them by cleansing the dust from their bodies. With excitement and animation the cowherd boys told the wonderful pastimes of Krishna.
They said, “Mother, Krishna is the crest jewel of all magicians. We personally saw His astounding activities. Our hearts filled with joy as we watched Him perform impossible feats. Once Krishna came and saved us when we were trapped in a devastating fire that burned us like poison.”
Pointing with his right index finger, Vrajaraja Nanda ordered his royal attendants to serve Krishna. After bathing Him, they fed Him food and drinks. The learned Krishna, of reddish eyes and charming character, found relief in their tender care. His body excelled the softness of a çiréña flower and the coolness of camphor. After mother Yasoda tenderly fondled her beloved son, Nanda asked Krishna to take rest.
Nanda Maharaja said, “Yasoda, as a wealthy man keeps his clothes and servants in separate rooms, now I think we should make a separate room for Krishna to sleep in.”
Smiling slightly, Yasoda replied, “But it seems that only a few days have passed since His birth. Even now He can hardly protect Himself. I cannot live a moment without having Him sit on my lap.”
Understanding her heart, Nanda Maharaja replied with gentle words, “O Yasoda, your memory is not very good. From the moment of His birth you have enjoyed the wealth of His pastimes. On one side we are very wealthy.” By not replying Yasoda communicated her approval. Nanda felt elated to see her response, so the next day he built special quarters for Krishna.
Despite unlimited personal efforts one cannot understand the transcendental pastimes of Krishna. Even though he outwits the best of yogis, Lord Brahma became totally bewildered by this tiny boy.
During this time Krishna killed a variety of demons like Vatsasura, Bakasura, and Aghasura. Krishna also bewildered Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, while enjoying a picnic on the bank of Yamuna. Thus ends the description of the kaumara lila of Lord Sri Krishna.
