SUMMARY: Love for parents
Topic: Under the Theme Love, we started this year with Swami’s teachings, Matru Devo Bhava – Pitru Devo Bhava
Embodiments of love!!! We have got to remember from moment to moment, the principle of the mother’s love. Under any circumstances we must make the mother happy. Without a mother being happy, I will not be happy. With your efforts, if you make your mother happy, I am also happy. -Baba 1999-11-19
Make parents happy and give them peace for, “Maatru devo bhava, pitru devo bhava”, mother is God, and father is God. The blood, the food and the knowledge are all the gifts of one’s parents. Therefore one must be first and foremost, grateful to one’s parents and make them happy and satisfied. Then God will be happy. “Maatru devo bhava, Pitru devo bhava”, mother is God, and father is God. All are divine. But one must start from one’s parents then extend it to the entire universe. That leads to true bliss. -Baba 1996-06-22
