Questioner: Why do people
give to charity?
gives because he wants something in return. A person gives happiness in order to receive
happiness in return. People do not give for the purpose of
liberation. When you give happiness to others, you will
receive happiness. Whatever you give, you will get back. That is
the rule. We receive by giving to others and we lose by
taking away from others.
Questioner: When there is no
connection between charity and the Soul, is it then
necessary to give charity?
Dadashri: Charity means to give and then receive. This
world is in the form of an echo. There will be echoes of whatever
you do and it will return to you with interest. Therefore if
you give, you will receive. In this life
you are reaping the benefits of whatever you gave towards a good
cause in your past life. If you do not do the same in this
life, it will all be wasted. What happens if you use up all the
wheat you harvest and do not sow anymore?
That is precisely how everything is. Give to charity. It will
create an echo, which will return to you amplified. It is because you gave in your past life, that
you are able to come to America, to a better life. Otherwise
do you think it is easy to come to America? It is because you have a lot of merit karmas
that you are even able to fly in a plane. There are a lot of
people who have never even seen a plane!
