"When Laxman, younger brother of Rama
asked Lord Rama to acquire the kingdom (Sri-Lanka)
after they had defeated and killed Ravana in the war,
Lord Rama advised him to hand over the kingdom to
Bubhishan, Ravana's younger brother, a rightful king
as it was his motherland and Bubhishan inherited it
after his elder brother's death. We must respect
others' land or wealth (or women) without thinking of
acquiring it in any way."
Indian tradition teaches us to respect our own mother
first, then others in the following order - teacher's
wife (a Brahmin lady), a queen, a cow, a foster mother
and the mother earth. We consider them as MOTHER and
respect them at par…"
"I salute my mother who
gave me birth; I also salute my other mothers (women)
who added knowledge and wisdom to my actions and life
to make me a good human being."
