14-Feb: Matri Pitri Pujan Diwas (Mother-Father Worship Day)
The Hindu epics like Ramayana, Sri Ramcharitmanas, Mahabharata, Srimad Bhagawat Gita, the Upanishad and other scriptures tells that He who honours, respects and worships any or all of these three (the mother, the father, and the Guru) is honoured in all the worlds and has all the success, fame, peace, love, happiness, wellness and spiritual blessings.
He, on the other hand, who disregards these three, fails to obtain any merit from any of his acts.They are really very fortunate who realized the significance of serving parents and the Guru and hence made their life successful.
Even Lord Ganesh worshiped his parents- Lord Shiva and Mother Parwati. The great devotees Pundalik & Shravan Kumar have established a remarkable exemple of parents worship. The modern day childern all around the world have also established examples of parent worship. Read the press clipping.
Pujya Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu has inspired over one million children all over the world to honor parents by showing their love and devotion to them instead of celebrating the western influenced Valentine's Day.
