The culture of Bharat has laid great stress on the teaching, Matrudevo bhava (revere the mother as God) and Pitrudevo bhava (revere the father as God). Aren’t there many great people in the state of West Bengal? Aren’t there many who are rich and educated? But they could not succeed in life due to lack of faith in God. It was only Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who could lead an ideal life by loving his mother and obeying her commands, due to his implicit faith and devotion to his mother. He taught people that there is nothing greater and nobler in this world than mother’s love. You take the history of any great person in this world; they owe their greatness to their mother. The mother is God, verily. It is, therefore, not proper to hurt the feelings of a mother who is the embodiment of love. It is only when we develop love towards our mother that our life will become happy and prosperous.
