Krishna Bound By His Mother’s Love

"[Upon seeing His mother's stick,] He cried and rubbed His eyes again and again with His two lotus hands. His eyes were fearful, and His quick breathing shook the strand of pearls on His neck, which bore three lines like a chonchshell. To that Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, whose belly is bound with the ropes of His mother's pure love, I offer my humble obeaisances." -Verse 2 of Sri Damodarastaka, from Padma PuranaPainted in 1977.
