Palanā Jhūlanā

Yaśodā is swinging Kṛṣṇa in a baby-swing. She moves the baby-swing and coaxes Kṛṣṇa with voice out of affection. She sings whichever lullaby comes to Her mind.[1]

[She sings] ‘O Nidrā (sleep)! Come in the eyes of my baby. Why don’t you come and make Him asleep? Why don’t you come running when Kānhā (Kṛṣṇa) is calling you?’[2]

Sometimes Hari (Kṛṣṇa) closes His eyelids and sometimes He parts His lips. Knowing that Kṛṣṇa is sleeping, Yaśodā remains quiet and asks others to remain quiet too.[3]

And when Hari woke up during this time, Yaśomatī (Yaśodā) sings in a melodious voice. O Sūradāsa! This pleasure [of having Lord as a baby], which is unachievable for great sages, is available to the consort of Nanda (Yaśodā).[4]
