The love of parents - The parent's love is selfless and sacred love in the world

A mother or a father sacrifice their life for their children. When their children are sick the parents sacrifice their time, their sleep and even their food to keep watch over their children. When a child grow can he or she sacrifice his or her life for his or her parents?

Once Jesus Christ said, “There is no greater love than this, that one lays down his life to save others." He gave his life for the sake of others. Selfless love is a form of sacrifice.

In 19th century, once upon a time there was a woman when she was driving home after visiting her relatives. As the car went round a curve, it suddenly skidded due to oil lying on the road. It struck the railing and then rolled down into the river flowing parallel to the road. She somehow managed to grab her little child and raised it high out of the window. She thought that someone would save her child. She raised her little child until she died. A traveller who was passing by in another car stopped he saw a little child in the river as soon as he saw he ran down to the river. He could pick up the baby from the hands of the mother before the mother was drowned. In the dying moments, the mother thought of only her child. Her love made her hold up the baby as long as she could.

A mother's love is selfless and sacred love in the world. Even mother cannot explain what love is. But mothers are capable of feeling the warmth of love and attachment in a better way than others.
