ones’s mother and one’s motherland

अपि स्वर्णमयी लङ्का न मे लक्ष्मण रोचते ।
जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी ।।

After defeating Ravana, and freeing Sita, God Rama coronated Vibhishana as the ruler of Lanka. Rama’s younger brother,Lakshmana, requested him to stay for some more time in Lanka, as it was such a beautiful city.

God Rama replied that he was not tempted to stay there. He did not like Lanka , even though it was filled with gold , and very wonderful.

In God Rama’s view, ones’s mother and one’s motherland , were both superior to even heaven.
