Yashoda is a character in Hindu mythology, known as the foster-mother of Lord Krishna. In the mythlore, she is depicted as a simple cowherd woman, with no divine or supernatural powers of her own.

In a surreal tale, baby Krishna shows his mouth to his mother, Yashoda, revealing the entire universe within himself. This includes the sun, moon, stars, planets, oceans, mountains, continents, and all beings. The story transforms Yashoda's understanding of her son, who is nothing but the divine itself.

#faithloreofscdbalaji : Despite witnessing this, Yashoda continues to treat Krishna as her child, reflecting the surreal nature of divine love and motherhood. This aspect of Yashoda's life, where the domestic and the cosmic intersect, is a key part of her portrayal in Hindu mythology, making her a unique figure in terms of sticking to the roles of life.
