CHARITY

Charity means voluntarily helping those in need as a humanitarian act by giving money, goods  etc., to the poor and needy either directly or by means of a Trust or Organization. Most forms of charity are concerned with providing basic necessities such as food, water, clothing, health care, shelter, education etc., Charity  further means sharing  what we have earned honestly and ethically with others. It is praised as a greatest virtue in Hindu Dharma. Real happiness results from giving and not from receiving.  It is our Dharma to give charity and serve the poor and needy in any way possible. 
In Bhagavath Githa Lord Krishna, in Chapter 17 versus  20, 21 and 22 taught us about what Charity means: 20:-     datayam iti yad danam diyate  nupakarine             deshe kale cha patre cha tad danam  satvikam   smritam. Charity given to a worthy person simply because it is right to give without expecting in return, at the proper time and place it is stated to be satvic in  nature.

MASCHARYA(JEALOUSY)

Mascharya is a feeling of jealousy when someone else gets ahead of us. It is a state of intolerance born by seeing good qualities in others. It is a strong emotion that can break any strong relationship. A feeling of unhappiness and anger because some one has something which you cannot possess or someone that you want. It is all about not accepting good qualities in others and is  one of the six bad vices.  Mascharya(jealousy ) is a form of hatred built upon insecurity and is classified as a mental disease. 
God does not like people having jealousy in their minds.  Arjuna became dearer to Lord Srikrishna, as the former is devoid of Mascharya(jealousy). In Bhagavat Gjitha  Chapter 9 Verse 1, Lord Srikrishna says to Arjuna as follows: idam tu te guhyatamam pravakshyamy                    anasuyave        Jnanam vijana sahitam  yat   jnatva                         mokshyase shubhat
Because you are not jealous I shall now explain to you the greatest of all secrets.        I shall explain this …

MADHA ( PRIDE)

MADHA(PRIDE/EGO) is the root of all evil and  one of the six bad vices viz., Kama(Desire), Krodha( Anger), Lobha(Greed), Moha(Attachment), Madha(Pride) and Mascharya( Jealous).  It is a  conceited attitude or way of behaving.  Due to the predominance of the three gunas i.e., Satvic, Rajasic and Thamasic,  its nature varies from person to person.  In Pride,  Rajas Guna predominates and true spiritual progress cannot be achieved.
pride person has an excessive self-image, feels  himself different from others,  too interested in  appearance and  proud of his abilities. He feels too confident and does not show enough respect for other people. A feeling that he is better or more important than others,  acts like a hurdle when one tries to have  a positive relationship with him. When viewed as a virtue,  it is known as virtuous pride about the greatness of  his soul or generosity, but when viewed as a vice it is often known to be self praising about one's own achievements, feeling of…

Who is Sadguru?

Generally everyone knows about teacher/Lecturer, who educates  the pupils. He teaches the knowledge of the subjects like English, Science, Social, Maths, etc., but it is far away from the knowledge of God. He teaches about the activities in this realistic world, viz., the style of living and how to behave in the society. He teaches us how to make our self a perfect human being to live in the society. 
Whereas Guru gives us Gyan (knowledge) about God, and about spirituality. He teaches us the process to attain God or Almighty by his devine speech or advices. Guru teaches us not only how to live the life in this world but also the life after death. A person who has healthy body, wealth, fame, good family and abundant knowledge of Scripters, epics, vedas and Upanishads and he himself a great writer of scripters but he has not surrendered himself at the feet of a Guru, then he has achieved nothing. 
Sri Ramchandra Maharaj, founder of Sahaj Marg, who himself is a Sadguru …
