Mother Yashoda

Hare Krishna Pamho Agtsp 

Just like Srimati Radharani ji is the Hladini potency of Lord Krishna, is Mother Yashoda also Vatsalya bhav related potencies of Lord Krishna?

Since she is so fortunate to become His mother?

Thanks in advance

  • Hare Krishna Anusha Mata ji,

    Please go thru the purport under these verses. 

    SB 10.8.48  Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: To follow the orders of Lord Brahmā, Droṇa, the best of the Vasus, along with his wife, Dharā, spoke to Lord Brahmā in this way.
    SB 10.8.49  Droṇa and Dharā said: Please permit us to be born on the planet earth so that after our appearance, the Supreme Lord, the Personality of Godhead, the supreme controller and master of all planets, will also appear and spread devotional service, the ultimate goal of life, so that those born in this material world may very easily be delivered from the miserable condition of materialistic life by accepting this devotional service.
    SB 10.8.50  When Brahmā said, “Yes, let it be so,” the most fortune Droṇa, who was equal to Bhagavān, appeared in Vrajapura, Vṛndāvana, as the most famous Nanda Mahārāja, and his wife, Dharā, appeared as mother Yaśodā.

    Because whenever Kṛṣṇa appears on this earth He superficially needs a father and mother, Droṇa and Dharā, His eternal father and mother, appeared on earth before Kṛṣṇa as Nanda Mahārāja and Yaśodā. In contrast to Sutapā and Pṛśni, they did not undergo severe penances and austerities to become the father and mother of Kṛṣṇa. This is the difference between nitya-siddha and sādhana-siddha.

    Hare Krishna.
    SB 10.8.46
    As stated in Bhagavad-gītā (7.16), catur-vidhā bhajante māṁ janāḥ sukṛtino ’rjuna. Without sukṛti, or pious activities, no one can come to the shelte…

    Hare Krsna Mataji,


    While I do not know the answer to your question, I am just discussing. There are 3 potencies of bliss of the lord - Samvit, Sandhini and Hladini. I do not know much about all three.

    Yashoda ma is the lord's eternal mother, in all pastimes. It is mentioned in the Srimad Bhagawatam that she has played the role of Lord's mother whenever He appears on earth through mother.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
