During this annual celebration we honor our own mothers in thought-and in deeds, when they are still with us. But devotees also think lovingly of the Divine Mother, and pray that she may bless and inspire all human mothers. To represent Her light shining through mothers of the East and West, we have chosen Yasoda (as shown in the painting by B. K. Mitra) who typifies the ideal mother. She cared for the little Lord Krishna himself--having chosen to worship God in the form of a child.
