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 Yaśodā, having done the ubaṭana (application of pastes to cleanse the body) and bath of the baby, took Him in her lap. Then she kept Kṛṣṇa in the baby-swing, kept a blanket over Him, and smiled with happiness.
Kṛṣṇa is seven days old at that moment and His lips, feet, and palms are red. O Sūradāsa! Having seen the reddish appearance of Kṛṣṇa, the children in Vraja were joyful.
