|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 5: The Meeting of Nanda Mahārāja and Vasudeva|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.5.29
aho te devakī-putrāḥ
kaḿsena bahavo hatāḥ
kanyā sāpi divaḿ gatā
śrī-nandaḥ uvāca — Nanda Mahārāja said; aho — alas; te — your; devakī-putrāḥ — all the sons of your wife Devakī; kaḿsena — by King Kaḿsa; bahavaḥ — many; hatāḥ — have been killed; ekā — one; avaśiṣṭā — remaining child; avarajā — the youngest of all; kanyā — a daughter also; sā api — she also; divam gatā — gone to the heavenly planets.
Nanda Mahārāja said: Alas, King Kaḿsa killed so many of your children, born of Devakī. And your one daughter, the youngest child of all, entered the heavenly planets.
When Vasudeva understood from Nanda Mahārāja that the mystery of Kṛṣṇa's birth and His having been exchanged with Yaśodā's daughter was yet undisclosed, he was happy that things were going on nicely. By saying that Vasudeva's daughter, his youngest child, had gone to the heavenly planets, Nanda Mahārāja indicated that he did not know that this daughter was born of Yaśodā and that Vasudeva had exchanged her with Kṛṣṇa. Thus the doubts of Vasudeva were dispelled.
