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 through 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 the 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 verses  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 is given  to a worthy person simply because it is right to give without expecting in return, at the prop

MASCHARYA(JEALOUSY)

Mascharya is a feeling of jealousy when someone else gets ahead of us or possesses things of value that we don't have. It is a state of intolerance born by seeing good qualities in others. It is a strong emotion that can break any strong relationship. It is a feeling of unhappiness and anger because someone 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.
