"Buddhism defines the idealmother as an example ofuniversallove, the middle way,
and bodhisattva path. In patriarchal dominant cultures, this ideal has limited
women to the role ofsey-sacrtjcing mother, especially the mother ofsons. Traditional
China is examined as the model of this oppression. Within Buddhist philosophy,
everyone is innately capable of transformation and awakening. Although there is no
concept ofguilt, there is a concept of regret or remorse. Yet in western cultures most
people are taught that they are guilty of sin fiom birth. For women in Christian
society, this sin has beenpasseddown through thefirst mother, Eve, who daredto seek
knowledge. However, in Buddhist thought, there is no sud taint against women.
Nevertheless, patriarchaldominant cultures also adapted Buddhistphilosophy to suit
their mores. Yet, in spite of these patriarchal constructs of what it is to be a mother,
what we learnfiom our mother, her love and nurturance to us as children, is what
rnakespeacepossible. Thispeace may be achievedthrough the bodhisattva ideal. In the
same way thata mother loves her only child, a bodhisattva loves allbeings. She knows
the suffering that life promises, the pain and sorrow at the loss of loved ones, the
ravages of oldage, disease anddeath. Abodhisattva, whether male orfemale, returns
to reach outfiom hisher rung on the ladder of life and help others."


"Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings
-Metta Sutta, Sutta Nipata 143-151"

A lazy person like me shortens the translation. He sings:
"Thank you, mom, for all that you have done for me." (This he lists up.) "I forgot to care about you and your help, mom, but now I have to say: Thank you...."
Very touching! :crying:

No, honestly speaking: I was really touched by this songtext, because I'm a mother...
But Germans feel ashamed to weep for emotion. I guess in other countries it is more common to cry openly in the cinema?
In Germany we often have to laugh about this because we don't want to admit such emotions of being touched. :smile: Sorry.

Sawaddee ka..Hop.pala/Ayu,

Love this new song too..very sweet..he seems to love his mama very much.

I found a cute song..by Carrie...I watched her when she was with American Idol...she was so pretty/talented !! And a song by Celine Dion...very very beautiful song/video.

Carrie Underwood - Mama's Song : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpFW4Yhy08k

Mama - Celine Dion : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWHhx_svpBg

Whenever my daughter and I watched movies about psycho baby-sitters...she would thank me for quitting my job to take care of her...so nobody could abuse her...my daughter always says that she loves me the most.

I think your opinion is no straightforward.

Yes, it isn't.

Edit: My dictionary says "straight forward" means "in a straight direction" or also "honest". So now I don't exactly understand, what you mean...

My opinion is not only in one direction, because sometimes I love it to be a mother, sometimes i hate it. Out of this I listen to such a song with different feelings: being touched on one hand, being disgusted about such gaudy trash on the other hand.

But both is honest.

What is the problem?

What saddens me is all the missunderstanding... In forums, in families, between countries. It's exhausting.
