न तस्य निष्कृतिः शक्या कर्तुं वर्षशतैरपि॥
तयोर्न्नित्यं प्रियं कुर्यात् आचार्यस्य च सर्वदा॥
तेष्वेव त्रिषु तुष्टेषु तपः सर्वं समाप्यते॥
yaṁ mātāpitarau kleśaṁ sahete saṁbhave nṛṇāṁ|
na tasya niṣkṛtiḥ śakyā kartuṁ varṣaśatairapi||
tayornnityaṁ priyaṁ kuryāt ācāryasya ca sarvadā||
teṣveva triṣu tuṣṭeṣu tapaḥ sarvaṁ samāpyate||
The most impossible thing for a son is to pay back even a minuscule of what his mother and father have suffered without complaint while bringing him to this earth and bringing him up as a man in the best and sincerest way they could manage. Hundreds of years of devoted service to them would not suffice.
If one always attempts to be of affectionate service to them and also the preceptor or the teacher who has opened one's eyes with education and if the parents and the teachers are pleased with such services, there is nothing more to be gained in life by years of penance.
The mother and father will have only love for their child whether the latter cares for them or not. We think we have become great in all respects… but to think of one's mother, now perhaps a human skeleton made ugly by age and suffering…For her the big executive or the rich entrepreneur is just the child who cried for milk or struggled miserably to escape from the remnants of his own urine and excreta. Had she not taken care for that small helpless frame, where will be the executive or the boss now? Believe in God, or don't do it if you prefer, but what about the Mother..? There are many enigmas which defy definition but mother is the sweetest one
Have a nice and happy day
with profound respect and warm regards

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life is GOVINDA alone.
