My Dear Friends, We believe that everyday, mothers should be honoured and love. No one can truly expound their greatness. They are superior than any mortal on this earth and beyond. The content of a Mother’s heart is unknown to a child. She carefully guards her emotions for the protection of her children, and with one look into our eyes, she is able to read all the activities in our minds. Mothers help their children to recognize that they can achieve the impossible, and they bring the arms of comfort to an insecure child in a world of uncertainty. There is a very old hindi song that tells us: Kowsi wo cheez jo, yahaa nahee miltee. Sab kuch miljaataa hai, lekin haa, Maa naheen miltee, maa naheen miltee. What is tthat one special thing, that cannot be replaced? We can have everything in life, but nothing will ever replace our mothers. We will never meet someone as great, powerful, tough, and loving as MAA. A hindu poet tells us, Mandir mein naa milenge, gurdwaar naa milenge. Ghar mein hi baithe terey bhagwaan. Apney maa ko pranaam, apney maa ko pranaam. There is one god that cannot be found in any house of worship, for she sits in the home. That God is called Mother. Friends, often we find that we go to far distances in search of God. Many of my friends have often told me that they have gone to places and climbed hundreds of steps to mandirs in high mountains in order to see the universal Goddess. I applaud you. But I must ask, how often do you climb the steps to your Mother’s homes? Food for thought. This sunday, leave whatever you are doing and spend the day with your MAMA. Work, social activity, parties and any other event in your life can wait. Mother shouldn’t. At BSM, we celebrate Mother’s Day in style. Hope to see you. To all mothers, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY………..and remember on this day, don’t turn a straw.
