Morning read something and it left me very disturbed. I got too restless and even long walk did not help me. So I picked up a book by Iskcon on Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s life. There were some nice incidents mentioned as short stories in the book. And suddenly in one page I came across this picture of Mahaprabhu and his mother Sachimata. It’s a picture showing Mahaprabhu meeting Sachimata for the first time after renouncing all worldly ties. He left home and took sanyaas, renouncing everything including his family. Scriptures say moment they came face to face, both embraced each other with tears in their eyes. And they stayed like this for hours while tears flowing down their eyes. What struck me so amazing is the fact that even someone like Mahaprabhu could not sideline the mother son bonding. This bond between a son and mother can never be shaken or broken. One who gives you life, one who is always protecting you, one who keeps you alive, how you can break free from that love!! Even Mahaprabhu, considered the avatar of the supreme God could not break himself free of this attachment. And this bond is so strong for a simple reason – she is forever holding on to you!
Each moment when we want to cry,
There’s someone who makes us laugh,
With her love fill our heart with sunshine
And sprinkles our life & soul with smiles!
That moment when we doubt ourselves,
Even our abilities and our worth,
That someone reminds of our strength,
And shows we have walked great length.
That moment when we realise,
No matter what life may bring,
Nothing can erase this eternal bond,
Between a mother and her child!
