Question: What is the mother's responsibility towards her children if they are not peaceful?Sri Chinmoy: The mother should try to bring down more light into them. They know the joy they get by shouting, striking and fighting. But if they get joy by loving, they will make a comparison. They will try to measure the joy that they get. When they see that the force of love, oneness and concern is more powerful than the force of fighting and struggling, then they will give these up. So the mother should try to bring down light through her love and then peace will dawn.
People are clever. They run after the things which give them the most joy. Naturally they will give more importance to the positive aspects of their life, the things which give them an abundance of joy.
