TRANSLATION
When mother Yasoda saw the whole universe within the mouth of her child, her heart began to throb, and in astonishment she wanted to close her restless eyes.
PURPORT
Because of her pure maternal love, mother Yasoda thought that this wonderful child playing so many tricks must have had some disease. She did not appreciate the wonders shown by her child; rather, she wanted to close her eyes. She was expecting another danger, and therefore her eyes became restless like those of a deer cub. This was all the arrangement of yogamaya. The relationship between mother Yasoda and Krsna is one of pure maternal love. In that love, mother Yasoda did not very much appreciate the display of the Supreme Personality of Godhead’s opulences.
At the beginning of this chapter, two extra verses sometimes appear:
“In this way, to chastise and kill the demons, the child Krsna demonstrated many activities in the house of Nanda Maharaja, and the inhabitants of Vraja enjoyed these incidents.”
“To increase the transcendental pleasure of the gopas and the gopis, Krsna, the killer of all demons, was thus raised by His father and mother, Nanda and Yasoda.”
Sripada Vijayadhvaja Tirtha also adds another verse after the third verse in this chapter:
vistareneha karunyat
sarva-papa-pranasanam
vaktum arhasi dharma-jna
dayalus tvam iti prabho
“Pariksit Maharaja then requested Sukadeva Gosvami to continue speaking such narrations about the pastimes of Krsna, so that the King could enjoy from them transcendental bliss.”
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Tenth Canto, Seventh Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Killing of the Demon Trnavarta.”
