Five “J” s difficult to obtain

 

Jananii- Mother

Janmabhuumi-Motherland

Jaahnavii- Ganga, river Ganges

Janaardhana- Lord Vishnu

Janaka- Father

 

Jananii janmabhuumiscajaahnavii ca janaardhanah

Kanaka pancamascaiva jakaaraah Pancha durlabaah

-Subaashita ratna baandaakaaram157-170

 

Five “J” s who never attain contentment

 

Jaamaataa-Son in law

Jatharam-Stomach

Jaayaa – wife

Jaatavedas-Fire

Jalaasaya-ocean

 

Jaamataa jatharam jaayaa jaatavedaa jalaasayah

Puuritaanaiva puuryante jakaaraah panca durbaraah

-Subaashita ratna baandaakaaram157-169

 

If you think deeper on each J you will know why our forefathers compiled this list of J-s. When they say Janaka=Father they mean an illustrious father who is praised as an example for other fathers. When they say Jananai= Mother , they mean an illustrious mother like Jeejabhai, who created a hero like Veera Shivaji.
