Shri Krishna Bal Leela Madhuri
(Sweetness of Krishna's Childhood Leelas)
Chalan lagey, thumuki thumuki Nandlal.
Baby Krishna started to walk in the style of a little toddler.
Thadhe hot, pag dvaik chalat puni, giri giri parat Gopal.
As he had not practiced much yet, he would stand by Himself, takes a few steps and fall again and again on the floor.
Puni ghuturavani gavani tahan pahunchat, jahan dehari vishal.
When he got tired of falling, he started happily crawling on his knees until he reached the main door which had a very high sill.
Kar-pad-udar sabai chhal-bal kari, langhan chah tatkal.
He wanted to cross the sill right away. With the help of his hands, he stood up and held onto the sill. He tried to lift his little leg over it, but couldn't. Then He tried to roll over the sill using his stomach and legs, and couldn't do that either.
Langhi na sakeyu, machayeu rodan, dourin matu behal.
He just wasn't able to cross it. Then Baby Krishna started crying loudly . Hearing his voice, Mother Yashoda anxiously came running to Him and picked Him up.
Bank-bhrikuti jehi pralaya soi kar, leela bal rasal.
The One who can cause the complete dissolution of the universe merely by lifting an eyebrow, today is not able to cross the door sill because it is too high. What a charming childhood leela He is performing!
Jani ravahi mero Lal kali heen, deharihin dehan nikal.
Mother Yashoda said, "Oh, my sweet child! Don't cry now. I will definitely get this sill removed tomorrow."
Imi 'Kripalu' kahi Hari dularavati, daharihin tadati tal.
Kripalu says that while Mother Yashoda spoke affectionately to Baby Krishna and rocked Him in her lap, she hit the sill with her hand to show him it was being punished for making Him cry, and in this way he felt better and became quiet.
