When does the honor of the mother decrease, when does the honor of the mother increase? This question that looks very simple is not a simple one. This is a very big question. This question is very much hidden within itself. As we know that even God cannot take place of mother, now you can understand yourself what is the importance of mother. The mother in front of whom the divine also falls short, who cannot be compared to anyone, the honor of that mother is also less, it is a surprise but also true.
Let's understand with a story:
An elderly mother is cleaning utensils in the kitchen at 11:30 in the night, there are two daughters-in-law in the house, who are troubled by the sound of utensils and tell their husbands to refuse their mother-in-law.
Daughters-in-law says to refuse your mother not to clean utensils on such a night, we sleep poorly, as well as wake up at 4 am and then start the disturbance, their worship work starts at 5 am then the aarti does not even let us sleep, neither rest in the night nor morning. Go think what you are doing, go and convince the mother to refuse all this.
The elder son gets up and goes towards the kitchen, on the way in the younger brother's room, he also recites the same things that were happening in his room.
He knocks the younger brother's room, the younger brother comes out. Both brothers go to the kitchen and help Mother clean the utensils.
Mother refuses, but they do not believe. After the utensils are cleaned, the both brothers take the mother to her room with great affection, and see that the father is also awake.
Both brothers sit on the mother's bed and say, "Mother, pick us up early in the morning, we have to worship with you too and then we will do yoga with my father in the morning."
Mother said okay kids. Both sons started waking up early with the mother in the morning, and on 9:30 pm, they started cleaning utensils.
After seeing this daughter-in-law said, Mother cleans the utensils, why are you cleaning the utensils?
The son said, one of the reasons behind marrying both of us was that the mother will get help but both of you are not doing this work. It doesn't matter that we help our mother; we are our mother, what is wrong with it.
The house underwent a complete transformation in the next three days. Many of them started cleaning utensils so that their husbands could not clean the utensils, as well as in the morning she also started getting up with both the husbands and started attending the puja aarti.
Within a few days, the atmosphere of the house changed completely. Many began to pay full respect to the mother-in-law.
Story summary: Parental respect is not reduced when daughters-in-law do not respect them, Parental respect is reduced when sons do not respect parents or do not cooperate in the work of parents.
Remember that you have a birth relationship with your parents, because first they are your parents, not your wives.
