पूज्यो, यथा विदग्ध-माधवे (२.२२) —
क्रोशन्त्यां कर-पल्लवेन बलवान् सद्यः पिधत्ते मुखं
धावन्त्यां भय-भाजि विस्तृत-भुजो रुन्धे पुरः पद्धतिम् ।
पादान्ते विलुठत्य् असौ मयि मुहुर् दष्टाधरायां रुषा
मातश् चण्डि मया शिखण्ड-मुकुटाद् आत्माभिरक्ष्यः कथम् ॥४.५.२९॥

mātaś caṇḍi mayā śikhaṇḍa-mukuṭād ātmābhirakṣyaḥ katham
||4.5.29||

English translation

Manyu against elders, from Vidagdha-mādhava [2.22]:
“O angry mother! When I shout to call someone, strong Kṛṣṇa immediately covers My mouth with His soft hand. When I try to flee in fear, He stretches His arms and blocks the path. When I bite My lower lip in anger, He falls down at My feet repeatedly. Please tell Me, how can I protect Myself from Kṛṣṇa?”
