His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


paśya paśya vayasyāṁs te
mātṛ-mṛṣṭān svalaṅkṛtān
tvaṁ ca snātaḥ kṛtāhāro
viharasva svalaṅkṛtaḥ


paśya paśya—just see, just see; vayasyān—boys of Your age; te—Your; mātṛ-mṛṣṭān—cleansed by their mothers; su-alaṅkṛtān—decorated with nice ornaments; tvam ca—You also; snātaḥ—after taking a bath; kṛta-āhāraḥ—and eating Your lunch; viharasva—enjoy with them; su-alaṅkṛtaḥ—fully decorated like them.


Just see how all Your playmates of Your own age have been cleansed and decorated with beautiful ornaments by their mothers. You should come here, and after You have taken Your bath, eaten Your lunch and been decorated with ornaments, You may play with Your friends again.


Generally young boys are competitive. If one friend has done something, another friend also wants to do something. Therefore mother Yaśodā pointed out how Kṛṣṇa's playmates were decorated, so that Kṛṣṇa might be induced to decorate Himself like them.
