CHARITY AT HOME
Tejinder Narang
“Charity begins at home”. This implies enabling the “soul or self” for merger with its Origin or Supreme Self. So long as the “soul” struggles to survive in sheltered bodies of life and death; keeps on settling karmic rentals on daily basis; creates additional karmic liabilities, how can such a distressed “being” be a Charitable? When mind is polluted with fire of five perversions, sentiments of self-less service with humility and devotion cannot emerge.   
 Mother Threasa, an evolved soul, practised charity of compassion as a medium of Divine Mercy as attitudinal dedication and not for any public demonstration.  Says Jesus “let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly”. Mystic concept of Charity is the emancipation of soul rather than temporal comforts riddled with pain and pleasures.
Commercial kindness to “Rob Peter to pay Paul” carries karmic retribution.  Guru Nanak’s concept of service to mankind embodies three conditions— one’s earnings must be honest, offered with remembrance and gratitude to the Lord and those beneficiaries must utilise amenities for honest living too. Donating indiscriminately to institutions of questionable integrity or exploiters or tortures of living entities is forbidden due to severest Karmic reprisal to all participants in the string. Economising on five elements of Nature—water, earth, air, fire, ether (sky) including environmental cleanliness, frugal lifestyles are also akin to Charity.
Unfortunately visible charity of display of wealth is generally prioritized over righteousness of self.   That is why such services prove to be of a limited utility. How can those who are uncharitable to their own Self prove to be charitable to others?

  1. BigProfitbuzz is an Indian stock market advisory firm. BigProfitbuzz proven month after month that trading and investing in stock market can be profitable whether market is bull or bear. As suggested last week our all client made a very good profit in the sell position of NIFTY. Now for the coming NSE STOCK TIPS week we suggest all the traders to make a buy position in NIFTY around 5850-5950 with stoploss 5700 for the target of 6200-6300.This is due to that NIFTY is has completed is consolidation phase. You can also can make buy position in NIFTY stocks also. But keep the strict stoploss of 5700 for the NIFTY & NIFTY stocks. For further update visit our website.
