Chaurasi khamba


Brahmanda Ghat

This place lies approximately one mile east of Nad-bhavan, the birthplace of Krishna. Here, the small boy Krishna ate clay while playing with the cowherd boys. The boy saw this and told Mother Yashoda, who asked Balram about it. Balram verified the fact. She went to Krishna and asked Him herself, “have you eaten clay?”

He replied, “No, Maiya, Idid not eat clay.”

“All right, Kanhaiya, open Your mouth and show me.”

“You can see, Maiya, “He said as He opened His mouth.

Looking into Kanhaiya’s mouth, Maiya became dumbstruck.

Brahmand Ghat Gokul

There, she saw innumerable universes, countless Brahmas, Vishnu and Maheshas(shiva), and all moving and non- moving entities. She closed her eyes in fear and thought, “What is this that I am seeing? It is an illusion or someone magical powers?” Upon opening her eyes, Mother Yashoda saw that Kanhaiya was sitting on her lap. She returned to the house and called the brahmans, who recited blessings to pacify the wrath of the demigods. She also donated cows and other valuables to the brahmans.
