Let’s also check out a brief history of Valentine’s Day
Behind Valentine’s Day, there is a story associated with every special day. It is said that during the third century, King of Claudius used to rule in Rome. He was very strict and stubborn. He felt that marriage would reduce the power of men and they will also become mentally weak. Because of this frenzy, he announced in the entire state that he or any officer or soldier he would be married would not get married. His order caused a lot of turmoil, but no one was able to have enough courage to ignore the king’s order.
At that time, Saint Valentine resisted the king, giving support to all the people. Saint Valentine united people against this dictatorship and motivated them to get married. Not only this, he used to arrange the marriages of soldiers and officers with his hands. When Claudius came to know of this, there was no limit to his anger and he ordered the hanging of Saint Valentine on February 14, 269. Since then, February 14 is celebrated as Valentine’s Day every year.
While love is the best emotion that humans are blessed with and this definitely needs to be celebrated. But love is best expressed through a mother, a Father even with one another, as human beings. We do need to explore these other human connections, and what better way than Valentine’s Day, guess this is the essence of “True love Day” instituted by Baba Ram Rahim Ji.
