ekada kridamanas te
krsno mrdam bhaksitavan
iti matre nyavedayan
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
One day while Krsna was playing with His small playmates, including Balarama and other sons of the gopas, all His friends came together and lodged a complaint to mother Yasoda. “Mother,” they submitted, “Krsna has eaten earth.”
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Here is another of Krsna’s transcendental activities invented to please the gopis. First a complaint was lodged with mother Yasoda about Krsna’s stealing, but mother Yasoda did not chastise Him. Now, in an attempt to awaken mother Yasoda’s anger so that she would chastise Krsna, another complaint was invented — that Krsna had eaten earth.
