    motherhood  is the happiest moment in a woman's life.
 A woman is complete only if she is a mother


Adi shankaracharya being a sanyasi himself couldnt  be detached from his mother. Aryamba the mother of shankara  brought up shankara under tough circumstances. his father passed away and she was the one who brought up shankara.

she wanted him to lead a normal life , but shankara wanted to become snayasi. she agreed on onec ondition
 that he would perform all the rituals as a normal man after her death

when his mother died sankara had an intution and he rushed to kalady( birth place of shankara)

just like you and me he cried for his mother 
and was so much in distress that he made

maatru panchakam( matru-mother panchakam- 5 verses)
of  those 5 verses
these 3 are very touchy

Aasthaam  tavaddeyam prasoothi samaye durvara soola vyadha,

Nairuchyam thanu soshanam malamayee sayya cha samvatsaree,

Ekasyapi na garbha bara bharana klesasya yasya kshmo dhathum,

Nishkruthi  munnathopi thanaya tasya janyai nama.

 

Oh mother mine,

With clenched teeth bore thou the excruciating pain,

When I was born to you,

Shared thou  the bed made dirty by me for an year,

And thine body became thin and painfull,

During those nine months that you bore me,

For all these in return,

Oh mother dearest,

I can never compensate,

Even by my becoming great.

 

Ambethi Thathethi Shivethi tasmin,

Prasoothikale yadavocha uchai,

Krishnethi Govinda hare Mukunde tyaho,

Janye rachito ayamanjali.

 

Oh mother mine,

Crying  thou shouted in pain,

During thine  hard labour,

"Oh mother, Oh father,

Oh God Shiva,

Oh Lord Krishna,

Oh Lord of all Govinda,

Oh Hari and Oh God Mukunda,"

But in return,

Oh my mother dearest.

I can give you but humble prostrations.



Mukthaa Manisthvam, Nayanam mamethi,

Rajethi jeevethi chiram sthutha thwam,

Ithyuktha vathya vaachi mathaa,

Dadamyaham thandulamesh shulkam.

 

Long live,

Oh, pearl mine,

Oh jewel mine,

Oh my dearest eyes,

Oh mine prince dearest,

And oh my soul of soul,

Sang  thou to me,

But in return of that all,

Oh my mother dearest.

I give you  but dry rice in your mouth.

Rama thank you for sharing such great verses from AdiSankara on mother.
I have never heard of this verse before though I heard of his returning to his village for his mother even after accepting sanyasa. 
Can't thank you enough for sharing such insights on this forum...Star

Yes Ramadi motherhood is the most tiring as well as happiest phase in a woman's life. But I dont believe you have to give birth to a child to become mother or by just giving birth you dont become a mother. Only by performing the duties of a mother you become a mother. That is why Yasodha is treated at par with Devaki as far as Krishna goes. Though Yasodha didnt give birth to Krishna the love with which she raised her made her the mother of Krishna.
And the lines of this song perfectly sums up the reverence Krishna gave to Yasodha.
 
Enna tavam cheythane yasodha, kanmunile parabrahman amma ennayzhae,
Brahmanum Indranum mannathil poraima kolla
Uralil ketti vay pothi kinja vaypai kannane
 
 
Transalation: What tapasya did Yasodha do to make God himself call her mother. Lord Brahama and Indra were feeling jealous of her. She is making the lord of universe tied to a chakri and make him beg at her.
 
That is what it is even the lord of universe in whose front the entire universe stands head bowed was allowing a woman to get angry with him, was begging with her and that lady was not the one who gave birth to him, but it was the lady who took care of him as her own son Yasodha.

yes shruthi

more than sandhya's emotions i'm not liking when they make suraj to feel more and more guilty Angry

wht a poor soul he is ! always struggling ! Even he faced more obstacles than sandhya for her dream.
As a husband he can't even feel happy for a moment for his wife's pregnancy.
Is this really needed now 
From Sandy's point of view it may be correct that she decides to leave TA. Wht will happen to suraj
Wont he put down himself for this . He definetly curse himself by thinking that he is reason for sandy leaving TA 

even now i'm thinking that they can proceed his storyline with kavitha somehow.
