There is only one reason you are here today and that is because of your mother! Without moms there are no human beings. In honor of Mother’s Day, we kowtow.
Kowtow is the act of deep respect shown by kneeling and bowing so low as to have one’s head touching the ground. An alternative Chinese term is ketou however, the meaning is somewhat altered: kòu originally meant “knock
with reverence”, whereas kē has the general meaning of “touch upon (a surface)”.
In Han Chinese
culture, the kowtow is the highest sign of reverence. It was widely used to show reverence for one’s elders, superiors, and especially the Emperor, as well as for religious and cultural objects of worship. In modern times, usage of the kowtow has become much reduced.
Once in awhile, it’s good to remember from whence we came and to whom we owe debts.
Although fraught with human frailty, our mothers endured a lot to bring us into the world, so we have a debt. Hopefully, we can say we have been worth it to them.
