of Satyavrata Muni; Sloka 2
rudantam muhur netra-yugmam mrjantam
sthita-graivam damodaram bhakti-baddham
He cries and rubs His eyes again and again with His two lotus hands. His eyes are fearful and His breathing quick. As Mother Yasoda binds His belly with ropes, He shivers in fright and the pearl necklace shakes upon His neck, which is marked with three lines like a conch shell. To the Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, whose belly is bound by His mother's pure love, not by rope, I offer my humble obeisances.
