The pandemic in 2020 changed life as we knew it. Distance became the new keyword. Children had to stay away from parents, grandchildren from grandparents. In such unprecedented times,
what brings some amount of solace is being to send gifts to our loved ones, even if we can’t be there with them on special occasions.
It’s always a challenge to come up with unique gifting ideas for parents. While moms and dads usually have different tastes, we bring to you some options which are suitable for both, making your task easier!
Divine Bhakti Set
This amazing set is a curated collection of 15 chalisas and a Gita Saar. The chalisas comprise of Ganesh, Lakshmi, Shiv, Hanuman, Durga, Krishna, Sai, Saraswati, Gayatri, Vishnu, Navgrah, Shani, Bhairav, Ganga, and Ram. The Gita Saar is a concise summary of the teachings of the Bhagvad Gita.
This exclusive gift box will make a perfect addition to your parent’s collection. Even if they are not religious, it’s a wonderful keepsake to own. And if they are spiritual then this gift shall add a special touch to their daily prayers. The best part about it is that it can be personalised, adding an unusual dimension to the gift. There are multiple options for personalisation from adding their names to a special message or even a photograph.
Prayer books might be found in every house but such prayer books with so much of thought and emotion behind them, are rare. Apart from the spiritual and sentimental value, the gift set has a luxurious look and feel to it, made with the finest paper and material, making it a perfect gift for your parents.
Ramayana and Sundar Kand
The famous epic, Ramayana, and its popular fifth chapter in the form of a book, the Sundar Kand make another great gift. These books can be gifted separately or together. There are several versions of the Ramayana and Sundar Kand available in the market.
There is also something called a Manka Ramayana. This is the singing of Lord Ram’s life story through 108 mankas. Manka is japa or prayer beads. They usually come in a set of 108. The 108 verses contain the story of Lord Ram from the time of his birth till his journey to vaikunth. The reading of Ramayana Manka with faith and devotion is known to bring joy to the heart, clarity of thought and peace of mind.
Sundar Kand is the only chapter in Valmiki’s Ramayana which depicts Hanuman as the hero. It explains in details the adventures of Hanuman and expounds on his traits of loyalty, agility, selflessness and strength. What comes through clearly is Hanuman’s absolute devotion to Lord Ram. Sage Valmiki named the chapter Sundar Kand because it is believed that Hanuman’s mother used to call him sundar.
The Sundar Kand can be chanted anytime during the day either alone or even in a group. It creates a feeling of positivity and strength in the reader and bestows happiness upon him.
These gifts are ideal for birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions such as Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.
