Trinavarta thought Krishna to be like a mountain & he tried to throw Him down. With Krishna grasping his throat, the demon choked. His eyes popping out, Trinavarta lost his life and fell to the ground. The gopis picked up Krishna from the demons chest, and delivered Him, unharmed, to Mother Yasoda. Everyone was very happy.

While Krishna was playing with some herdboys, their ball fell into the river and Krishna jumped after it. The serpent Kāliya rose up with his hundred and ten hoods vomiting poison and wrapped himself around Krishna's body. Krishna became so huge that Kāliya had to release him. When he saw the Brij folk were afraid he sprang onto Kāliya's head and assumed the weight of the whole universe, and danced on the naga's heads, beating time with his feet.
