|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 85: Lord Kṛṣṇa Instructs Vasudeva and Retrieves Devakī's Sons|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.85.54
apāyayat stanaḿ prītā
mohitā māyayā viṣṇor
yayā sṛṣṭiḥ pravartate
apāyayat — she let them drink; stanam — from her breast; prītā — lovingly; suta — of her sons; sparśa — because of the touch; parisnutam — drenched; mohitā — bewildered; māyayā — by the illusory energy; viṣṇoḥ — of Lord Viṣṇu; yayā — by which; sṛṣṭiḥ — creation; pravartate — comes into being.
Lovingly she let her sons drink from her breast, which became wet with milk just by their touch. She was entranced by the same illusory energy of Lord Viṣṇu that initiates the creation of the universe.
In the opinion of Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī, the word sṛṣṭi can here also refer to the creative process by which Lord Viṣṇu's Yogamāyā arranges the settings and situations of His pastimes. There is indeed no question of mother Devakī being affected by the material aspect of Māyā.
