A Child’s Duty

Children’s duties: (These five ways in which a son or daughter should minister to his mother or father)

1. Support them with four requisites-food & drinks, clothing, shelter, and medication- (Bhato vā no bharissati)

2. Perform their duties such as feeding, giving bath, rubbing body, washing feet, raising them and helping them to do whatever they find difficult to do (Kiccam nesam karissati)

3. Keep up the family tradition, name, image (Kulawamsam thassati)

4. Be worthy of their inheritance (Dāyajjam patipajjissati)

5. Transfer merit to them after their death (Atha ca pana petānam kālakatānam dakkhinam anupadassati).
