Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
Third Talk - 8
Long ago in the Upanishadic era the students, after having imbibed knowledge from a teacher in a Gurukula, were told upon completion, “Your stay with me is over; now you have to go into the world, enter into active, social life and become a householder. Whatever you have learnt here, you must practise and apply in your householder life and elevate it to a sublime and noble height.” He would thus give the final parting instructions to the group of students or graduates as it is done in the Universities today.
This is the ancient version of the modern University Convocation Address in those forest universities or the Gurukulas. As parting advice, the students were told, ‘Matri devo bhava, Pitri devo bhava,’—“Honour your mother as God; honour your father as God.” This we can understand because during the most helpless period of our life, when we are totally helpless after birth, it is the mother who gives her whole life: day and night, sacrificing her rest and sleep to look after the child, protecting it, nourishing it, loving it and making it comfortable as it is a newcomer to a strange world.
