"Krsna, as a child, was disturbing His mother by His naughty activities, and she wanted to bind Him up. Mother Yasoda brought some rope from the house and tried to tie up the child, but she could not tie a knot due to the shortness of the rope. She tied together many ropes, but when she finished still the rope was too short. After a while she felt very tired and began to perspire. At that time Krsna agreed to be bound up by His mother. In other words, no one can bind Krsna by any means other than love. He is bound only by obligation to His devotees, because of their ecstatic love for Him."
