sa—that female child; tat-hastat—from the hand of Kamsa; sam-utpatya—slipped upward; sadyah—immediately; devi—the form of a demigoddess; ambaram—into the sky; gata—went; adrsyata—was seen; anuja—the younger sister; visnoh—of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; sa-ayudha—with weapons; asta—eight; maha-bhuja—with mighty arms.
The child, Yogamaya-devi, the younger sister of Lord Visnu, slipped upward from Kamsa’s hands and appeared in the sky as Devi, the goddess Durga, with eight arms, completely equipped with weapons.
Kamsa tried to dash the child downward against a piece of stone, but since she was Yogamaya, the younger sister of Lord Visnu, she slipped upward and assumed the form of the goddess Durga. The word anuja, meaning “the younger sister,” is significant. When Visnu, or Krsna, took birth from Devaki, He must have simultaneously taken birth from Yasoda also. Otherwise how could Yogamaya have been anuja, the Lord’s younger sister?
