यू: पुमान यश: स्वर्ग कीर्ति पुण्यं बलं श्रियं।
पशु सुखं धनं धान्यं प्रापुंयान्मातृ वंदनात ।।
There are huge number Of shloks in ‘Vedas’ or other manuscripts on “Mother”. From Deity ‘Maa’ to our ‘Biological-Maa’ there is the list of ‘Mothers’ which provides us shelter and love in one or the other form.
Deity ‘mother’ embrace our souls with the lesson of purity and strength, Our mother ‘Nature’ here provide us outer beauty sense, next is country ‘BharatMaa’ which always motivate us to be honest and faithfull to our sacrifices and here comes our Mother ‘Land’ who makes our ‘roots’ strong with grabness of soil.
Now its turn to our biological ones as father’s mother (Daadi) to mother’s mother (naani) as they are always in our heart having tokan of love.
Mother’s womb to the last breath She remains same no changes,never. And as she gets old by age her essence to her children never fades even a bit.
When one starts to serve each of our ‘Mothers’ in some manner or the other then one would never be less in demands or in need to the materialistic power. Person who serves his/her mother is always blessed with success, long life, heaven, fame, strength, wealth, cattle, grains and everything. And yeah, its also the meaning of the shlok mentioned above.
But one thing which I personally wants to add in this… might or not make sense to ‘some’ but for others surely it will.
For me one who serves you and give you her time, strength, care, love, motivation, one who provides you her shoulder and hands in need whether its mother, wife, sister, daughter, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, girlfriend, or your soulmate, even a little munchkin who makes your teeth grin, all nurtures you somewhere in your life and plays the role of “MAA” and for this, you should be thankfull and surely have gratitude to all of them. They needs nothing but your blessings, care and respect.
Just a single tokan of ’emotion’ from you makes you and them ‘Both’ filled with all the cherishments of life…
