“IN FIVE WAYS one should minister to one’s parents:
•Having supported me, I shall support them.
•I shall do their duties.
•I shall keep up the honor and the traditions of my family.
•I shall make myself worthy of my heritage.
•I shall make offerings dedicating the goodness of my practice to my parents after their death.”

These words of the Buddha give expression in terms of observance to the feeling of loyalty and gratitude that a clear-minded person may have with regards to their parents. That this is not necessarily the case is a sad reflection on either the quality of our parents or the attitude of neglect that the society or the individual has towards these powerfully influential people. Even as adults we often respond to situations in ways that are attributable to parental influence — for good or for ill. It is an area to acknowledge and explore. This booklet is edited from a talk given by Ajahn Sumedho at Amaravati in October 1994 on a day that the Sri Lankan community had asked to have dedicated to remembering parents. It deals with cultivating the feeling that backs up the observance.




AJAHN SUMEDHO is abbot of Amaravati Buddhist Centre and senior most Western disciple of the late Thai meditation master Ajahn Chah. Amaravati is affiliated with the Forest Sangha: a world-wide community following Chah’s Thai Forest tradition. See www.forestsangha.org and www.abd.ndrect.co.uk/fsn/. Sumedho has works closely with lay organizations, notably the English Sangha Trust and with his disciples to set up a British Theravadin monastic order. This order now number 60 monks and nuns over several monasteries.
