The seven mothers

posted in: English 0

According to scriptures also, there are seven mothers:

(1) the real mother,

(2) the wife of the spiritual master,

(3) the wife of a brāhmaṇa,

(4) the wife of the king,

(5) the cow,

(6) the nurse, and

(7) the earth.


All of them are mothers. Even by this injunction of the śāstras, the stepmother, who is the wife of the father, is also as good as the mother because the father is also one of the spiritual masters.


Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.11.28
