gratitude to our parents 01

The Buddha said, “ There are two persons to whom one can never adequately express one’s gratitude. They are our mother and father.” Our parents have made great sacrifices and took great pain to nurture us.

The Buddha said we should repay the kindness of our parents in 5 ways:

1)     By supporting them (just us they have supported us)

2)     By doing their duties

3)     By protecting the family property

4)     By preserve the family honour

5)     By dedicating the merits virtuous deeds to our deceased parents
