His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Once, Lord Baladev began to talk in his sleep, saying: “O lotus-eyed Krishna, your childhood adventures are manifest simply according to your own will. Therefore please immediately dispose of the stubborn pride of this Kaliya serpent.” By saying this, Lord Baladev astonished the assembly of the Yadus and made them laugh for some time. Then, yawning so hard as to make ripples on his abdomen, Lord Baladev, the bearer of the plow, returned to his deep sleep. This is an instance of sleepiness in ecstatic love. ·
