SB 10.18.16
evam tau loka-siddhabhih
 kridabhis ceratur vane
nady-adri-droni-kuñjesu
 kananesu sarahsu ca

Translation:
In this way Krsna and Balarama played all sorts of well-known games as They wandered among the rivers, hills, valleys, bushes, trees and lakes of Vrndavana.



SB 10.18.17
pasums carayator gopais
 tad-vane rama-krsnayoh
gopa-rupi pralambo ’gad
 asuras taj-jihirsaya

Translation:
While Rama, Krsna and Their cowherd friends were thus tending the cows in that Vrndavana forest, the demon Pralamba entered their midst. He had assumed the form of a cowherd boy with the intention of kidnapping Krsna and Balarama.

Purport:
Having described how Krsna and Balarama acted just like ordinary boys, Sukadeva Gosvami will now reveal one of the Lord’s transcendental pastimes that is beyond the range of human activity. According to Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, the demon Pralamba disguised himself as a particular cowherd boy who on that day had remained at home with duties to perform.
