The Fundamental Blessing of Parents

A certain scholar of religion says that a child is receiving the blessing of its parents from being raised by them. However, is the blessing of parents only the process of being raised? Parents are giving their child the priceless gift of life. Parents are our benefactors, who have given us life, and existences, who could also be called the starting point of our ancestors. A child from his parents, and parents from their grandparents—life is being inherited. The feeling when thinking about this is our outlook on ancestors.

親の根本的な恩

 

ある宗教学者は、子供は育っていく上で親の恩を受けていると言います。

しかし親の恩とは育っていく過程のことだけでしょうか。

親は子に対して命というこれ以上ない贈り物をしています。

親とは自分に命を与えてくれた恩人であり、ご先祖の出発点とも言える存在です。

子は親から、親は祖父母から、命を受け継いでいる。

その意味を想う気持ちが先祖観なのです。
