Krishna with Yashoda at ISKCON Vrindavan

One day krishna was playing with his friends in the courtyard of the house. Yasoda was busy cooking in the kitchen. Suddenly Balarama rushed to her and said, “Mother, Mother, Krishna has eaten mud.”Yasoda did not believe him. But the other friends also said, “Yes, mother, he ate in front of all of us even though we forbade him”. Yasoda was irritated by Krishna’s new prank. Her house had every kind of sweets. Why then should the restless boy eat mud? She rushed to Krishna, caught hold of him with her left hand and raised her right hand as though to slap him. She said: “You mischievous fellow! Why did you eat mud? Your friends and even Balarama say so.” But child Krishna protested. “Mother” he said, “I have not eaten any mud. They are all liars. If you want, look into my mouth.”

“All right, open your mouth. Let me look into it,” said Yashoda. Challenged by his mother thus Krishna, who was God come in human form to teach and delight His devotees, opened his mouth. Ah! What did mother Yashoda see in his mouth!

Inside the narrow space of her son’s mouth she saw the whole universe. There was the whole earth, heaven, sun, moon, stars and all else! All the gods and goddesses were there

Every temple should be like this one! There is such a deeply felt mood of devotion and love in this temple. The care taken to decorate the Lord and His temple is evident in the beautiful darshans. And the perpetual kirtan is absolutely heart-penetrating. The property also has the samadhi and home of the great Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada who took bhakti-yoga outside of India and spread it throughout the world.
