JKYog extends Mother’s Day greetings to all with a special “Happy Mother’s Day” audio message by Swami Mukundananda and dedicated to all the wonderful mothers!

Mothers have the exceptional privilege to partner God in bringing forth life and nurturing it with love. A mother’s unconditional love and devotion is incomparable to any other kind of love in this material realm. Even before birth, our mother provides us with our first experience of nurturing. Our cells divided and grew to the beat of her heart. Subsequently, she toiled in raising us while pouring all the affection in her heart. This could not be done by anyone else. Mother’s give up so much so that her children can have so much without any condition! Giving us our first lessons in ethics is also an expression of her love. Of all her many qualities, the most special is a mother’s heart endowed with tenderness and toughness, compassion and sincerity. To every mother, her child is the prettiest child in the world. On Mother’s Day, we reciprocate our mother’s love by nurturing the sentiments – my mother is the dearest sweetest angel and a tower of strength when I need it. Mother, you gave me life and you nurtured it with your unconditional love. Thank you, Mom! We will always be grateful for the life lessons we have learned in your lap.

There is yet another mother who has nurtured us lifetime after lifetime; and that is God; who takes on the form of the mother of the universe: Mother Parvati, Mother Sita, Mother Durga and Mother Radha. She has been waiting since innumerable lifetimes for her child to turn around from the worldly allurements. When we see that our bodily mother’s love is so beautiful; how much deeper will be the love of the divine mother.

Today on Mother’s day, I offer my obeisance to your lotus feet, O my Divine mother of the universe! with the utmost reverence devotion and gratitude that my heart can muster. O Radha Rani, please bless me with a drop of the devotion that you possess for the supreme father Lord Krishna. Please hold my hand and engage me in loving devotion to my supreme father.
