FATHER………………….CHANT PITAHNOSHI …………………..

Pitahnoshi is a sloka of Upanishadh where the father has been  depicted as the Almighty and Protector throughout. Its a wonderful sloka.  Our great poet Rabindranath Tagore’s elder daughter  used to chant this  to him  more often. When his elder daughter was bed ridden and counting her last few days , once she asked Rabindranath to chant the slokas of Pitahnoshi……………………..it came as a thunderbolt to Rabindranath as it came as an irony to him……………even the almighty and protector cannot be larger than our ultimate destiny. Later on Rabindranath wrote his heart wrenching experience of chanting  Pitahnoshi to his daughter in her last days  whom he loved and adored so dearly.
