There are many enigmas which defy definition but mother is the sweetest one

यं मातापितरौ क्लेशं सहेते संभवे नृणां।
न तस्य निष्कृतिः शक्या कर्तुं वर्षशतैरपि॥
तयोर्न्नित्यं प्रियं कुर्यात् आचार्यस्य च सर्वदा॥
तेष्वेव त्रिषु तुष्टेषु तपः सर्वं समाप्यते॥
मनुस्मृति
yaṁ mātāpitarau kleśaṁ sahete saṁbhave nṛṇāṁ|
na tasya niṣkṛtiḥ śakyā kartuṁ varṣaśatairapi||
tayornnityaṁ priyaṁ kuryāt ācāryasya ca sarvadā||
teṣveva triṣu tuṣṭeṣu tapaḥ sarvaṁ samāpyate||
manusmṛti

 

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

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