Mother’s day special – Lemon Drizzle cake

DSC08403

We are all living from our families miles and miles apart . The roots still are in us and there are special days for us to express our love to our beloved ones even if we are living far away. The gifts too can be given a through courier and  in many forms. But there is a  precious way to show our love to our near and dear ones  ,which is known as Samam Brahmam parallel psychology. It means serving and loving the soul which is near you or who comes to you . Suppose i want to send a gift , bake cake to my mother , i need not use a courier or send  the  cake, i can offer it to someone who i adore as mother or someone who comes to our house on that day. In the Hindu tradition this has been believed for many years , but we are all  again  realising it and trying to expand ourselves through this psychology. For Mother devotees it is  seeing Mother in each and all, which means seeing the Divine in everyone.

Do you know what   happens when we do  this psychological change we not only please the  person before us , but  our soul which wants to get connected with everyone in the depth feels happy . If our soul feels happy then we are fulfilling the purpose of our birth and serving the  divine .Everyday numerous opportunities are offered to us, we may used or have lost it , but now by reading this you too would have got an good influence and must be baking a cake or sending a gift  to serve the soul before you , it may need be your own mother . So the chain spreads and  i believe my initiation will bring my mother too a gift which is best for her on this special day . And the first offering goes to the Divine mother  and  i/we  have gifted this cake to our beloved Aunty Mrs Usha Vijayan Singapore Mother Centre  as we all revere her as our Mother and has  always been, is being  the same for us . We do not feel homesick or yearn for our mother when  are near her. These are the best words i can  explain about her . Happy Mother’s day to all fellow bloggers and readers and spread this message as far as you can .Thanks.
