The carpenter has made a baby-swing adorned with jewels, gems, and gold; there are many toys kept around it and strings of beautiful pearls are hanging at the four corners.||1||
Mother Yashoda, having done the Ubatana (application of pastes to cleanse the body) and bath of the baby, took Him in her lap. Then she kept Krishna in the baby-swing, kept a blanket over Him, and smiled with happiness.||2||
Krishna is seven days old at that moment and His lips, feet, and palms are red. O Soordas! Having seen the reddish appearance of Krishna, the children in Vraj felt joyful.||3||
