923 – Remembrances about Fathers

Padma Purana states, “Sarvedevmayh Pita”—
father is the embodiment of all devatas, gods.

Hindu Scriptures state:
Pita dharmah, pita, swargah, pita hi parman tapah,
Pitr preetmpanne preeyant sarva devta.

A father is as sacred as Dharma, as divine as the heavens and is one of the greatest symbols of austerity in this world. The gods are pleased if one makes one father happy.

Taittiriya Upanishad stated that one’s father was like a god.

Again, we select special days when we remember and respect our loved ones. Why is it not possible to be loving, forgiving, dedicated and respectful to all?

I end on this note as our only solution is Atmabhava, love for all our fellow creatures.
