    As far as we are concerned we should consider them to be on the same platform.

    There is a chapter in the tenth canto where the meeting between mothers Devaki, Rohini and Yasoda is described. Perhaps you might like to read that.

  • harekrishna prabhuji,

    what if yasodama brings up krishna? is he not the son of devaki ma... love is sacrifice just imagine how the mother feels in seperation of the child krishna if she has not sacrificed kamsa would have harmed him, she sacrificed in the interest of krishna is it not some thing great? only the wearer knows where the shoe bites.. both are great. in my eyes..

    • Hare Krishna!

      Yes certainly You are correct. Both Yasoda and Devaki are both extremely great personalities. But i am asking about Devaki and Rohini. Rohini is mother of Baladevji and She is also Vasudeva's wife like Devaki Mataji.

      So this is why i am asking this question.

      Why is it that one wife can see childhood pastime of Krishna and the other cannot?
