rudantam sutam adaya
yasoda graha-sankita
krta-svastyayanam vipraih
suktaih stanam apayayat
rudantam—crying; sutam—son; adaya—picking up; yasoda—mother Yasoda; graha-sankita—fearing some bad planet; krta-svastyayanam—immediately performed a ritualistic ceremony for good fortune; vipraih—by calling all the brahmanas; suktaih—by Vedic hymns; stanam—her breast; apayayat—made the child suck.
Thinking that some bad planet had attacked Krsna, mother Yasoda picked up the crying child and allowed Him to suck her breast. Then she called for experienced brahmanas to chant Vedic hymns and perform an auspicious ritualistic ceremony.
Whenever there is some danger or some inauspicious occurrence, it is the custom of Vedic civilization to have qualified brahmanas immediately chant Vedic hymns to counteract it. Mother Yasoda did this properly and allowed the baby to suck her breast.
