Dasakam - 46 - Revelation of Cosmic Form
Once Krishna after taking feed from yashoda, was lying flat on back on her lap. He yawned and for a moment, Yashoda saw the entire universe in his mouth. Later, Krishna was playing with his friends. He plucked fruits promising to share it with the friends but cheated them by eating all of them. Angered friends came to mother yasodha and complained that Krishna ate mud.
Lord consumes earth, water and everything during pralaya or deluge. If he eats mud, nothing can happen to him. However Yashoda is innocent of the fact that Krishna is the Lord himself and feared that he will fall sick if he eats mud and got angry for the act. She repeatedly asked Krishna if he has eaten mud, but Krishna smilingly denied it again and again, very assertively.
Yashoda told Krishna that Balarama and friends are confirming that he has eaten mud. She asked him to either accept the mistake or open his mouth and show to her. Krishna opened his mouth slowly, like a lotus in full bloom. Yashoda wanted to see the mud little atleast in his mouth, Krishna did not want to disappoint his mother. He showed Earth and all worlds in his little mouth.
Yashoda saw forest, ocean, clouds, skies and rasaathalam in his mouth. One another side, she could see people, asuras, devas. Not only these, Yashoda saw Lord Sri Hari reclining on the snake bed and lying in the milky ocean in the Sri Vaikuntam. At the same time, she also saw him as a small child showing his mouth to her inside his mouth.
Yashoda saw all the worlds and Nandagokula, and in that she saw Krishna with mouth wide open and in that again the many worlds and again in it another Nandagokula and the infinitude of the Universe. For a moment, Yashoda gained the enlightenment that Krishna is paramatma himself. Immediately Krishna showed affection and deluded her to think that he is her son and got on to her lap, asking her to feed him.
Bhattathiri requested this wondrous child to protect him.
