|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 14: Brahmā's Prayers to Lord Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.14.48
hato 'vitā vayaḿ cāsmād
iti bālā vraje jaguḥ
adya — today; anena — by Him; mahā-vyālaḥ — a great serpent; yaśodā — of Yaśodā; nanda — and Mahārāja Nanda; sūnunā — by the son; hataḥ — has been killed; avitāḥ — have been saved; vayam — we; ca — and; asmāt — from that demon; iti — thus; bālāḥ — the boys; vraje — in Vṛndāvana; jaguḥ — sang.
As the cowherd boys reached the village of Vraja, they sang, "Today Kṛṣṇa saved us by killing a great serpent!" Some of the boys described Kṛṣṇa as the son of Yaśodā, and others as the son of Nanda Mahārāja.
Actually, Lord Kṛṣṇa had killed the demon Aghāsura one-year earlier, but the boys, bewildered by the mystic potency of Brahmā for one year, did not notice the time passing and thus thought that on that very day Lord Kṛṣṇa had killed the demon Aghāsura and was now returning home with them.
