Sri Sukadeva Gosvami continued: One day when mother Yasoda saw that all the maidservants were engaged in other household affairs, she personally began to churn the yogurt. While churning, she remembered the childish activities of Krsna, and in her own way she composed songs and enjoyed singing to herself about all those activities.
While churning the butter, mother Yasoda was singing about the childhood activities of Krsna. It was formerly a custom that if one wanted to remember something constantly, he would transform it into poetry or have this done by a professional poet. It appears that mother Yasoda did not want to forget Krsna’s activities at any time. Therefore she poeticized all of Krsna’s childhood activities, such as the killing of Putana, Aghasura, Shakatasura and Trnavarta, and while churning the butter, she sang about these activities in poetical form. This should be the practice of persons eager to remain Krsna conscious twenty-four hours a day. This incident shows how Krsna conscious mother Yasoda was. To stay in Krsna consciousness, we should follow such persons.
I am so grateful to Mother Mrgaksi and all her grown up devotee kids, as well as Mother Yamini, for their wonderfully magical recordings which did not earn them a penny but was simply an offering to Srila Prabhupada’s mission.
How empty my children’s childhood would be without this devotional music.
My husband and I also feel our own lives have become enriched by these songs. Mother Yamini’s Krsna Book cd’s are our personal favorites. We wished we had been introduced to them when we were new to Krishna Consciousness.
