Kṛṣṇa Palanā

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.[1]

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.[2]

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.[3]
