In the celestial world, All the Gods and Demigods were also happy to see Lord Vishnu’s incarnation on Earth. They showered flowers on the baby from heaven.
Nanda’s wife Yasoda cherished her dark complexioned son. She embraced and kissed him. All the gops(cowherd) and gopis were in praise for the baby. They admired every part of the baby!
