Sabrahmaka Suttaṃ

Sabrahmakasuttaṃ
【With Brahma】




Living with Brahma are those families where, within the home,
mother and father are respected by the children.

Living with the early devas are those families where, within the home,
mother and father are respected by the children.

Living with the early teachers are those families where, within the home,
mother and father are respected by the children.

Living with those worthy of adoration are those families where, within the home,
mother and father are respected by the children.

'Brahma,' bhikkhus, is a term for mother and father.
'Early devas' and 'early teachers' and 'those worthy of veneration'
are terms for mother and father.

For what reason?
Because mother and father are very helpful to their children,
they take care of them and bring them up and teach them about the world."

Mother and father are called
"Brahma," "early teachers"
And "worthy of adoration,"
Being compassionate towards
Their family of children.

Thence the wise should venerate them,
Pay them due honour,
Provide them with food and drink,
Give them clothing and a bed,
Anoint and bathe them
And also wash their feet.

When he performs such service
For his mother and his father,
They praise that wise person even here
And hereafter he rejoices in heaven.
