Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


Once, His mother tied Him with ropes to a mortar because she had caught Him stealing butter. Then, crawling on His hands, He dragged the mortar between a pair of arjuna trees and pulled them down.


The two arjuna trees were old and thick, and they towered above little Kṛṣṇa's courtyard. Nevertheless, they were pulled down quite easily by the naughty child.
