Supporting one's father and mother, cherishing wife and children and a peaceful occupation; this is the greatest blessing.
Sutta Nipata 262
Lord, give us joy in our spouse and children, and make us models for the God-fearing.
May in this family discipline overcome indiscipline, peace discord,
charity miserliness, devotion arrogance, the truth-spoken word the false
spoken word which destroys the holy order.
Avesta, Yasna 60.5
Natural mildness should be there in the family. Observance of vows leads to mildness... Right belief should there be amongst family members. Crookedness and deception cause unhappiness in the family. Straightforwardness and honesty in one's body, speech, and mental activities lead the family to an auspicious path. Purity, reverence, ceaseless pursuit of knowledge, charity, removal of obstacles that threaten equanimity, service to others - these make the family happy.
When you look at your life, the greatest happiness is family happiness.
