pītvā — having drunk; amṛtam — nectarean; payaḥ — milk; tasyāḥ — her; pīta — of what had been drunk; śeṣam — the remnants; gadā-bhṛtaḥ — of Kṛṣṇa, the wielder of the club; nārāyaṇa — of the Supreme Lord, Nārāyaṇa (Kṛṣṇa); ańga — of the body; saḿsparśa — by the touch; pratilabdha — regained; ātma — of their original selves (as demigods); darśanāḥ — the perception; te — they; namaskṛtya — bowing down; govindam — to Lord Kṛṣṇa; devakīm — to Devakī; pitaram — to their father; balam — and to Lord Balarāma; miṣatām — as they looked on; sarva — all; bhūtānām — the people; yayuḥ — they went; dhāma — to the abode; diva-okasām — of the demigods.
By drinking her nectarean milk, the remnants of what Kṛṣṇa Himself had previously drunk, the six sons touched the transcendental body of the Lord, Nārāyaṇa, and this contact awakened them to their original identities. They bowed down to Govinda, Devakī, their father and Balarāma, and then, as everyone looked on, they left for the abode of the demigods.
Lord Kṛṣṇa remained as an infant with Devakī and Vasudeva for only a very short time. First the Lord appeared before them in His four-armed Viṣṇu form, and after hearing their prayers He changed Himself into an apparently ordinary infant for their pleasure. But to save Kṛṣṇa from suffering His brothers' fate, Vasudeva at once removed Him from Kaḿsa's prison. Just before Vasudeva took Him away, mother Devakī suckled Kṛṣṇa once so that He would not feel thirsty during the long trip to Nanda-vraja. This we learn from the commentary of Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura.
