Ma Lakshmi Didi while addressing the parents emphasized the need for inculcating the values in their  children by themselves living those values. She explained to all the mothers present that to please Mother Lakshmi they aught to dress themselves up modestly, so that the children adore them, to please Mother Saraswati Devi they should consciously use sweet words and never use abusive language and to please Goddess Parvathi Devi they aught to live happily taking all the members of the family just as the goddess does with all her children their  Vahanas( Peacock, mouse,snake,bull etc).Then and then only can they become 'Sri-Matas'
