LORD KRISHNA SAYS GIVER OF FOOD IS THE GIVER OF LIFE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN LIFE (ANNADHANA) ..
Feeding the needy is regarded as the best form of philanthropy in Hinduism. The reason assigned is that this is the only thing when one is satisfied and refuses any more. Partaking what one is about to eat is the duty of a Hindu.
Feed the needy …..!
” Annadaanam Param Dhanam”-There is no greater dhanam than annadhaanam because of the contentment of the gruhastha in serving the food and the adhithi in consuming what has been served. In other material dhanam such complete contentment is not there.
Mathru Devo Bhava, Pithru Devo Bhava, Acharya Devo Bhava and Adhithi Devo Bhava – Taitreya Upanishad .
Our Pujya Guruji Says:
There are two ways to reach Delhi one by Train which takes 3 days to reach, its cost is Rs. 600/- per person and another by Flight which takes only 2 and half hours to reach, its cost is Rs. 5000/- , who is well being in life reaches Delhi by Flight and who are not well-off reaches by Train, like wise god always gives us chance to get rid of our karmas, we should use this chance and get rid of our karmas, we should be in a state to identify the chance or surrender ourselves to the Guru.
