(Kṛṣṇa spoke about the cowherdesses:) O Mother! They are putting false blame on me. They are now habituated to wander into someone else’s home. That is why they use excuses (like this to come to our home).
Due to them, I have stopped playing altogether; but still I am not able to avoid (their) complaints. They break their own utensils, immerse their hand in milk or curd, and (then) come to accuse me.
Sometimes they make their own child cry, and then walk him by hand here (with the accuse that I have made them cry). They themselves do the misdeed and then blame it on someone else. Their speech is superior (in arguments) to Brahmā.
To know my habits, please ask Balarāma. I am always playing with Him. I do not like the children who are unkind towards others. Then how can I myself be unkind to someone?
Upon listening to the clever defense of Kṛṣṇa, the cowherdesses blush and hide their face. Tulasīdāsa says that the līlā of Baby Gopāla is sung by the sages (muni).
