Who complained that Krishna eats mud?

One day the gopas complained to mother Yashoda that they saw Krishna eating dirt in a secluded place. Yashoda became very worried and asked Krishna why He had eaten dirt. Krishna said, “I didn’t eat dirt. All of them are speaking lies.” Yashoda love for Krishna then spoke, “If you didn’t eat dirt, then let me look into Your mouth.” 

How is it that the Absolute Truth tells lies? The Absolute Truth cannot tell lies. But as a baby, Krishna increases her mother’s vatsalyarasa. This return of heartfelt love on the liberated platform is the best truth. Sir Krishna opened his mouth, and Mother Yashoda was able to see all the planets, creatures, and demigods. She saw Viratrupa. 

When she saw such an unusual manifestation of Lord Krishna‘s wealth, she began to wonder if she was dreaming or indulging in illusions. Srila Prabhupada explains that when we are bewildered by a situation where we cannot understand or figure out its logic, a devotee takes shelter from the Supreme Lord. 

Srila Prabhupada explains that when inconceivable reversals and challenges come upon us, we may not intellectually understand how or why they happen. In such a state, a devotee naturally takes shelter from the Lord. And the simplest way of finding that shelter is to call out for Krishna’s mercy by calling out His holy names. 

Yashoda Maiya began to pray to Supreme Lord Narayana. When Sir Krishna saw her praying, she smiled at her and covered her again with the power of Yoga Maya.

What is the answer of Krishna to mother Yashoda?

His mother, Yashoda, coming up to him with a wagging finger, scolds him: “You shouldn’t eat dirt, you naughty boy.” “But I haven’t,” says the unchallenged Lord of all and everything, disguised as a frightened human child. “Tut! Tut! Open your mouth,” orders Yashoda. 

Krishna does as he is told. He opens his mouth, and Yashoda gasps. She sees in Krishna’s mouth the whole complete entire timeless universe, all the stars and planets of space and the distance between them, all the lands and seas of the Earth and the life in them.

She sees all the days of yesterday and all the days of tomorrow; she sees all ideas and all emotions, all pity and all hope, and the three strands of matter; not a pebble, candle, creature, village, or galaxy is missing, including herself and every bit of dirt in its truthful place. 

“Sir, you can close your mouth,” she says piously. Every part of the universe has the whole universe. Hamlet, in a nutshell, saw an infinite space. William Blake saw a grain of sand, a wildflower sky, and eternity in an hour.

I gave you sandeśa.” Krishna said, “No, mom, I haven’t eaten anything.” 

“No, your friends are complaining.” “No, they became my enemies this morning. There was some debate. So like this, then my mother, Yashoda, raised this issue. I wanted to solve: “Okay, show your mouth and open your mouth.
