Baby Swing of
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.
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
Yashoda is swinging
[She sings] O
Sleep! Come in the eyes of my baby. Why don't you come and make
Him asleep? Why don't you come running when Kanha (
Sometimes Hari (
And when Hari woke up during this time, Yashomati (Yashoda) sings in a melodious voice. O Soordas! The pleasure [of having Lord as a baby] which is unachievable for great sages is available to the consort of Nand (Yashoda).
Mother Yashoda is
swinging Shyam (
Lord responds by lifting His arms upwards and then Yashoda takes Him in her arms with happiness. O Soordas! Yashoda is pleased by Lord and her good deeds from past lives are getting repaid back.
[Yashoda is] swinging
That Whose mysteries are
beyond Brahma, and is not achieved by Shiv and Sanakadi, is now
being seen by Yashoda who is happily swaying
thinks about her past blissful deeds and then gazes at the
beautiful body of her son
While swaying Krishna in the baby swing, Yashoda addresses as Dear one! The playful sports of Krishna as a child are immense.
Yashoda is pleased after watching the face of the child. The Lord of Soordas (baby Krishna) is no one else but Vishnu, Who holds the Shaarnga-bow.
O Kanhaiya-! Swing in the swing. The carpenter has meticulously made and brought the swing and showed its working on the ground. O Ka-nha-! I am lost in Your charms; swing in the swing.
[Yas'oda- says] The carpenter was asking for hundred-thousand coins and Your father, Nanda, gave him two hundred thousand coins instead. I am lost in Your charms; swing in the swing. The swing has studded precious stones and a cord of silk. I am lost in Your charms; swing in the swing.
[Yas'oda- says] Sometimes swing in the swing, and sometimes swing in the lap of Nanda. I am lost in Your charms; swing in the swing. The dames of Vraja pull the cord of swing, and Su-rada-sa is lost in the charms of Ka-nha-; swing in the swing.
