Ulūkhalabandhana

[Yaśodā says] ‘I have tied You (Kṛṣṇa) now and I will see who sets You free.’ Yaśodā said, ‘You have bothered me a lot,’ and tied the hand of Kṛṣṇa to a wooden-mortar.[1]

Kṛṣṇa got Himself tied up because Mother Yaśodā was very angry. He saw Yaśodā and started weeping. The cowherdesses of Vraja came running when they heard about the punishment of Kṛṣṇa at the hands of Yaśodā. They all pleaded Yaśodā to leave Kṛṣṇa (even though the punishment was due to their complain).[2]

After tying Kṛṣṇa to the wooden-mortar, Yaśodā started to break a small tree-branch, as a stick, to beat Kṛṣṇa. Seeing the stick, the cowherdesses were repentant, and turned their face in different directions to avoid the scene.[3]

[Cowherdesses said] ‘O Yaśodā! Don’t be so angry (literally, don’t do like this). You have tied your son for a small amount of butter and curd.’ Then they thought, ‘We have created this atrocity for the Kṛṣṇa of Sūradāsa. We did wrong.’[4]
