The Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam has a paribhāsa-sūtra, or Emperor verse; the verse through which all other verses in the Canto should be viewed and understood, and it is as follows:

trayyā copaniṣadbhiś ca
sāṅkhya-yogaiś ca sātvataiḥ
hariṁ sāmanyatātmajam

“The glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead are studied through the three Vedas, the Upaniṣads, the literature of Sāṅkhya-yoga, and other Vaiṣṇava literature, yet Mother Yaśodā considered that Supreme Person her ordinary child.” (Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 10.8.45)

Throughout Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes, there is a constant interplay of his Godhood alongside his being the cheeky blue darling of the Vraja-vāsīs. In Vṛndāvana, as opposed to Dvārakā, the sweetness of the latter significantly overpowers his various opulences, and that is seen vividly in the Dāmodara-līlā.

Śrī Dāmodara-jananī weaves a captivating tale of the glories of Mother Yaśodā. No other person has ever received the unique mercy that Kṛṣṇa showed his own mother, teaching devotees for all time that the binding force of love for him is more powerful than even his own supreme will. A līla that stopped the demigods in their tracks, captivated the residents of Gokula, and even stunned the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, this most powerful and beautifully scripted spotlight on Mother Yaśodā is a revelation that will bind devotees’ hearts, and in turn, detail the path to hopefully binding the heart of our beloved Śrī Kṛṣṇa.
