MOTHER’S DAY SPEECH

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

MOTHER’S DAY SPEECH

Speech given by Randall Butisingh made at a gathering of people of a mixed religious group.

……………………..

We have met today to pay tribute to that most important and lovable person, the Mother.

Here is a quotation from one of your bhajans ( hymns)

Maa teree mamta, kitnee pyaree

Kitnee pyaar jagatee hai

This translates as follows;

Mother, how great is your love

How much love does it awaken in me.

In another bhajan in your Atma Geet, it says; Maata, putra se pyar, kaun karega itnaa.. Yes, the love a mother has for her son, who can exceed that love. And if I may quote a poem I learnt in school as a child;

A mother’s love, how sweet the name,

What is a mother’s love?

A noble, pure and tender flame

Enkindled from above

To bless a heart of earthly mould

The warmest love that can grow cold,

That is a mother’s love.

Yes, mother is the sweetest name on earth. Her love is kindled by the Divine Flame. The ideal mother is God’s substitute on earth. She nourishes her child with her own blood in her womb and suckles it when it is out. She watches and protects it night and day. She tends it lovingly as a gardener tends his precious plants, watering, mulching, pruning, keeping off harmful pests. A good mother is patient and self sacrificing; she sleeps not while her little one is awake, and she is worried when it is ill.

If you look at the lives of some of the greatest men who ever lived, you will find that they owe their greatness, primarily to the care and nurture of their mother, especially in their formative years. She, it was who taught them quite early the path of devotion to God. Gandhiji was one such man who benefited from a devout and loving mother..

Of course, sad to say, there are mothers who have not played that role in the lives of their children as the poet rightly observed; “the warmest love – no other earthly love can be so warm and tender as the mother’s – yet as human beings who are prone to error, that love grows cold, and some mothers relinquish that duty and that obligation, nay! that God-given privilege and responsibility of providing the affection and nurture for their offsprings.

We are not here to condemn any mother. Who are we to condemn. Only the great Creator knows why a mother acts in the way she does. Let Him be the Judge. We are here to honour all mothers. Without them, we could not have been here. We owe them a duty for their labour and pain for bringing us into the world. If we serve them, they will bless us. There is no blessing like that of the mother.

At this time also, it behooves us to remember our Divine Mothers. You who are Hindus in this gathering have Lakshmi Mata, goddess of light and prosperity, Sarswati, goddess of learning, Sita, for her love and devotion to Lord Rama, her consort; Christians have Mary, the mother of Jesus and Mother Teresa that great soul who has become mother for thousands of the underprivileged, homeless, sick and suffering in India and branches in other parts of the world. Muslims have Khadeja and Aisha, wives of the prophet Muhamad. You could add to this list; I have named but a few.

Now, I would like to wish all the mothers here HAPPY MOTHERS DAY and ask God’s blessings on them so that they can continue their demanding role until the end. Also to those who are not biological mothers, but have played the role successfully and are even more deserving of our thanks and appreciation.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS WORLDWIDE.

  1. Patanjali Ramlall said,

    Let’s observe Mothers’s Day with one thing in mind.

    Mothers represent “A Sacred Thread” that binds us to them, and to Creation.

    Please, please leave the commercialism and the greed of unscrupulous vendors aside, and pay homage to our earthly Goddesses.

    Patanjali Ramlall

    P.S. The same can be said for Christmas, St. Valentine’s Day, Easter, etc.

    • I LIKED UR NICE SUGGESTIONS ON MOTHER I AM REALY GOOD FAN OF U

      • sesilia said,

        all about mothers are the main important thing to be learn from

  2. Thanks for your comments Pat. I should have mentioned also the belief of the Hindus In Gau Mata, Mother Cow which gives us milk for sustaining the young and the sick and for the production of ghee (clarified butter) dahi (yogurt), Kheer (boiled rice with milk,raisins or spices and sugar) and Paneer (homemade cheese). Even the offal is of great value. It is the best manure for plants. It is also said to have antiseptic value and is used , mixed with earth, for daubing the floors and walls of houses. When dried it is used as fuel for cooking.
    Then there is Ganga Mata (Mother Ganges) whose water is said to remain pure, no matter what goes into it. The water is said to have medicinal properties. Pilgrims go everyday to the Ganges to dip and get purification.
    Then, we have the greatest of all Mothers, DHARTEE MAATAA (MOTHER EARTH) which is the source of everything we get to make us happy and contented. But sad to say, it has been exploited and abused by the greedy few and the ignorant, resulting in the degradation of the environment. If this behaviour continues, we will have to expect much more of what we are getting now – more floods, earthquakes, huricanes and tornadoes. Our food and water supply also are being contaminated by the indiscriminate use of harmful chemicals sprayed from the air and on the land, and the sea is polluted by harmful effluents from the factories of big industries.

    My Mother is the most beautiful woman God has given me. It is because of her today that i am born she takes utmost case of all my needs. When i was a young child she did not ignore me. She gives me importance and protects me always. She has provided forme a good school for my education whenever i go wrong always she stands-up for me and forgives me. My mother cooks food for me and gives me the nutrition i require she gives me the best clothes i desire she takes care of me when any danger would befall upon me. She has a beautiful voice and songs a söng for me when i am feeling sad or lonely.

    how well speech

  49. simran upadhyay said,

    .”A mother is someone who loves us so much,
    That we some time can’t understand,
    A mother is someone who make us realise how good we are,
    That there is no one better than us,
    Her happiness is in our laughter,
    And sorrow in our sorrow,
    She is someone we can’t live without,
    She is every thing,
    Only we don’t have her.
    This few words for my best mom.
