Lokvani wishes all its readers a very Happy Mother's Day!
Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the glories of the Divine Mother — God, who takes on the form of Radha Rani, Mother Sita, Mother Durga, and so forth. She is the Mother of the soul who is waiting with Her hands outstretched from countless lifetimes for her child to turn to Her. Forever merciful and compassionate, She is the reason for our existence and sustenance. Graciously, She provides for us and nourishes us by bestowing life lessons for growth and attaining perfection.
Mother's Day in the US
In the US, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May each year.
The idea started in America when a woman called Anna Jarvis held a small memorial service for her own mother on 12 May 1907.
Soon after, most places in America were observing the day and in 1914, the US president made it a national holiday, celebrated on the second Sunday of May.
