    Radha Mata is very much coreect.

    ONE BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PARENTS LOVE AND GOD'S LOVE IS THAT GOD IS SUPREME AND BEING THE SUPREME HIS LOVE IS GREATER THAN THE COMBINED LOVE OF ALL MOTHERS.

    KNOW THIS ONE THING FOR CERTAIN -
    HOWEVER BAD A MAN MAY BE, EVEN IF THE WHOLE WORLD TURNS (away) FROM HIM, GOD'S LOVE TOWARDS HIM NEITHER CUANGES NOR FALTERS .

    WHEREAS PARENTS CANNOT DO THIS BECAUSE THEY THEIR EGO, PERSONALITY, CHARACTER,STATUS, POSITION MIGHT BE MORE DEAR TO THEM THEN THEIR CHILD.

    ALSO U MAY SEE THESE VIDEOS TO UNDERSTAND MORE IN DETAIL ABOUT REAL AND PURE LOVE:-

    Our parents cannot love us in this way.

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

    PAMHO.

    It is said that the closest to God's love is mother's love. Even among parents, mother's love is considered to be more selfless than the father's. Therefore we will speak about mother's love, which is limitless, spontaneous, and atleast when the child is small, completely without any expectations from the child. God's love for us is also limitless, very very forgiving, spontaneous, without any reason. If this was not so, why would He want us back, despite so many lifetimes of having forgotten Him and trying our best to enjoy in this material world without Him.

    Limitations of parents love - the relationship of parents with child can be changing. The way it is without expectations and spontaneous in childhood, it becomes with expectations when the child becomes an adult. This love could even be selfish and spoil the child's future. All this is true, esp in the age of Kali. You may be aware, one of the symptoms of Kali is - cow is licking the calf so much that blood is coming out from the calf's body. THis signifies that the parents will be so protective of their children, to the extent of the detriment of the child. So many parents I know who have spoilt their children so much - whatever the child wants is provided, whether it is food or clothes, or toys or gadgets, without any thought of whether it is good for the child or not. It is a common sight to see in any child's birthday, another child will be crying because he wants to cut the cake. Parents have not taught him that he cannot be centre of attraction everywhere. Or children crying on coming second in games, they don't know how to face failure.....I could go on an on....

    In effect, what I am trying to say is that parents love can change over time, it is limited to their child, that too limited to his childhood, whereas God's love is limitless and not bound by any considerations of time or age.

    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
