TEXT 6

pita-mataya dekhaila cihna carana
SYNONYMS
balya-lilaya—in His pastimes as a child; age—first of all; prabhura—of the Lord; uttana—turning the body; sayana—lying down; pita-mataya—unto the parents; dekhaila—showed; cihna—marks; carana—of the lotus feet.
TRANSLATION
In His first childhood pastimes the Lord turned upside down while lying on His bed, and thus He showed His parents the marks of His lotus feet.
PURPORT
The word uttana is also used to mean "lying down on the bed face upwards" or "lying down flat on the bed." In some readings the word is utthana, which means "standing up." In His childhood pastimes the Lord tried to catch the wall and stand up, but as an ordinary child falls down, so the Lord also fell down and again took to lying on His bed.
