Hari is playing and swaying at the home of Nanda. Yaśodā (or Yaśomatī) is doing the work of kitchen while Kṛṣṇa is chirping and crackling with joy.
Yaśodā asked Kṛṣṇa, ‘‘Why don’t you run and come here?’’ Recognizing mother’s voice, Kṛṣṇa starts moving towards Yaśodā crawling on his knees.
Yaśodā lifted Kṛṣṇa in her lap and started cleaning his soiled legs and hands with her clothes1. She asks, while stroking away the dust, ‘‘O Dear! Where did you get all this soil from?’’
1 Since Yaśodā asked Kṛṣṇa to run, It appears that He crawled to gather dust and bother Yaśodā as a part of His naughtiness.
