|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 7: The Killing of the Demon Tṛṇāvarta|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.7.11
rudantaḿ sutam ādāya
sūktaiḥ stanam apāyayat
rudantam — crying; sutam — son; ādāya — picking up; yaśodā — mother Yaśodā; graha-śańkitā — fearing some bad planet; kṛta-svastyayanam — immediately performed a ritualistic ceremony for good fortune; vipraiḥ — by calling all the brāhmaṇas; sūktaiḥ — by Vedic hymns; stanam — her breast; apāyayat — made the child suck.
Thinking that some bad planet had attacked Kṛṣṇa, mother Yaśodā picked up the crying child and allowed Him to suck her breast. Then she called for experienced brāhmaṇas to chant Vedic hymns and perform an auspicious ritualistic ceremony.
Whenever there is some danger or some inauspicious occurrence, it is the custom of Vedic civilization to have qualified brāhmaṇas immediately chant Vedic hymns to counteract it. Mother Yaśodā did this properly and allowed the baby to suck her breast.
