In this episode Ma highlights the 'Vatsalya Bhava' -- the Motherly affection of Yashoda towards her Gopala. The imaginative and descriptive narration speaks about Nandagopa and Yashoda who experience Supreme Bliss in bringing up little Krishna and showering him with all their affection.
Ma also describes the state of mind of the Gopas and Gopikas whose hearts and minds were constantly fixed on Krishna with love and devotion.
Ma narrates the scene where Mother Yashoda ties little Krishna up as a punishment for his mischief. The same Krishna who was not attainable even by great saints was easily tied by Yashoda. Ma says that it was only because of one pointed devotion and unparalleled love that Mother Yashoda had this rare fortune.
This exposition leaves us with the message that when we have this non-possessive and unconditional love towards the Lord, then all the bondages, possessiveness and attachments will simply drop from the heart. Then little Krishna will dance and play in our heart eternally.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
