|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 13: The Stealing of the Boys and Calves by Brahmā|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.13.21
tat-tad-vatsān pṛthań nītvā
tat-tad-goṣṭhe niveśya saḥ
tat-tat-vatsān — the calves, which belonged to different cows; pṛthak — separately; nītvā — bringing; tat-tat-goṣṭhe — to their respective cow sheds; niveśya — entering; saḥ — Kṛṣṇa; tat-tat-ātmā — as originally different individual souls; abhavat — He expanded Himself in that way; rājan — O King Parīkṣit; tat-tat-sadma — their respective houses; praviṣṭavān — entered (Kṛṣṇa thus entered everywhere).
O Mahārāja Parīkṣit, Kṛṣṇa, who had divided Himself as different calves and also as different cowherd boys, entered different cow sheds as the calves and then different homes as different boys.
Kṛṣṇa had many, many friends, of whom Śrīdāmā, Sudāmā and Subala were prominent. Thus Kṛṣṇa Himself became Śrīdāmā, Sudāmā and Subala and entered their respective houses with their respective calves.
