Why worshipping God in Hinduism is important Namaste friends, how are you doing today? Bhagavan Sri Vishnu blessings to you and your family!

What is Pundalik and Lord Vitthal story | Why do we need to serve our parents | Pandarpur story

What is Pundalik and Lord Vitthal story | Why do we need to serve our parents | Pandarpur story Namaste friends, how are your doing today? Bhagavan Sri Krishna / Vitthal blessings to you and your family! Every person by birth becomes rini (debtor) for parents — without whom the very existence on this earth would not have been possible, devatas — for all the panchabutas, rains, nature etc. and rishis — for giving us puranas, shastras etc. Of these, the rinam (debt) of parents cannot be paid back easily and is virtually impossible. Hence one needs to at least do seva (serve) to them, listen and adhere to their words and give them a lot of respect. This is the least one can do to them. Our puranas also show that one can attain moksha just by doing seva (serving) to parents. Once upon a time, there used to live a great Bhakta of Sri Krishna. He had a wife, who deserved to be his...
