The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom

Those families where mother and father are worshipped in the home are said to be like Brahmã, like teachers of old, they are ranked with the gods of old. Truly worthy of offerings are those families where mother and father are workshipped in the home.

“Brahmã, teacher of old, gods of old, worthy of offerings” are terms for mother and father. And why? Because mother and father do much for childern – they bring them up, nourish them and introduce them to the world.
