Easwaramma Day is an annual celebration held by the Sathya Sai International Organisation to honour and remember the mother of Sathya Sai Baba. Easwaramma was a pious and pure village lady who over the years had to broaden her concept of love, expanding it beyond the confines of family and community to embrace all as the phenomena of Sai Baba attracted more and more people. The day honours the principle of motherhood and the role the mother plays as the child’s first teacher. It is also observed as Children’s Day, as children were her particular concern.
‘Motherhood is the most precious gift of God. Mothers are the makers of a nation’s fortune or misfortune. They should teach two lessons, fear of sin and fondness for virtue. Both these are based on faith in God, being the inner motivator of all. If you want to know how advanced a nation is, study the mothers; are they free from fear and anxiety, are they full of Love towards all, are they trained in fortitude and virtue? If you like to imbibe the glory of a culture, watch the mothers, rocking the cradles, feeding, fostering, teaching and fondling the babies.Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol 7.6 1968
