Why is Parents Worship Day celebrated?
Parents Worship Day also known as Matru Pitru (mother and father) Poojan Divas was started by Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu in 2007 as an alternative to Valentine’s Day. Parents Worship Day is celebrated on February 14 every year. As visible from the title, this day is dedicated to one’s parents giving them the respect, love, and care they deserve.
Parents Worship Day motivates the positive spirit of serving parents in the heart and soul of the children. This festival draws its inspiration from the pooja of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati performed by little Ganpati.
The idea is to spark the importance of cultural values our Indian heritage holds in Indian children. Parents Worship Day is all about strengthening family bonds and being grateful to our parents for everything they do for us selflessly giving us an example of true and pure love.
