But he only looked at her with his big black eyes and said, “No, mother I have not eaten mud at all. You may examine my mouth, if you think I am lying.”
“OK. Open your mouth and show me,” Yashoda asked Krishna. Krishna opened his mouth wide and Yashoda was surprised to see the entire Universe

your own harmony by continually returning to it.

Marcus Aurelius
