 hata yeneha lilaya

Here in Vrndavana, Krsna and Balarama easily destroyed demons like Pralamba, Dhenuka, Arista, Trnavarta and Baka, who had themselves defeated both demigods and other demons.

SB 10.46.27
sri-suka uvaca
iti samsmrtya samsmrtya
 nandah krsnanurakta-dhih
aty-utkantho ’bhavat tusnim

Sukadeva Gosvami said: Thus intensely remembering Krsna again and again, Nanda Maharaja, his mind completely attached to the Lord, felt extreme anxiety and fell silent, overcome by the strength of his love.

SB 10.46.28
yasoda varnyamanani
 putrasya caritani ca
srnvanty asruny avasraksit

As mother Yasoda heard the descriptions of her son’s activities, she poured out her tears, and milk flowed from her breasts out of love.

From the very day that Krsna had left for Mathura, mother Yasoda, though counseled and consoled by hundreds of men and women, could see nothing but the face of her son. She kept her eyes closed to everyone else and cried constantly. Thus she could not recognize Uddhava, treat him with parental affection, ask him any questions or give him any message for her son. She was simply overwhelmed with love for Krsna.
