Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, Chapter 09, Text 11

SB 10.9.11

krtagasam tam prarudantam aksini
kasantam añjan-masini sva-panina
udviksamanam bhaya-vihvaleksanam
haste grhitva bhisayanty avagurat
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
When caught by mother Yasoda, Krsna became more and more afraid and admitted to being an offender. As she looked upon Him, she saw that He was crying, His tears mixing with the black ointment around His eyes, and as He rubbed His eyes with His hands, He smeared the ointment all over His face. Mother Yasoda, catching her beautiful son by the hand, mildly began to chastise Him.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada: 
From these dealings between mother Yasoda and Krsna, we can understand the exalted position of a pure devotee in loving service to the Lord. Yogis, jñanis, karmis and Vedantists cannot even approach Krsna; they must remain very, very far away from Him and try to enter His bodily effulgence, although this also they are unable to do. Great demigods like Lord Brahma and Lord Siva always worship the Lord by meditation and by service. Even the most powerful Yamaraja fears Krsna. Therefore, as we find in the history of Ajamila, Yamaraja instructed his followers not even to approach the devotees, what to speak of capturing them. In other words, Yamaraja also fears Krsna and Krsna’s devotees. Yet this Krsna became so dependent on mother Yasoda that when she simply showed Krsna the stick in her hand, Krsna admitted to being an offender and began to cry like an ordinary child. Mother Yasoda, of course, did not want to chastise her beloved child very much, and therefore she immediately threw her stick away and simply rebuked Krsna, saying, “Now I shall bind You so that You cannot commit any further offensive activities. Nor for the time being can You play with Your playmates.” This shows the position of a pure devotee, in contrast with others, like jñanis, yogis and the followers of Vedic ritualistic ceremonies, in regarding the transcendental nature of the Absolute Truth.
