Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj was the very embodiment of love and compassion. Being captivated by him, aspiring devotees would unhesitatingly approach him for answers to their questions. He in turn would be so concerned and loving towards them that they would completely forget that they were conversing with such a great Saint, to whom the entire world bows before.
This booklet is a compilation of important answers Shri Maharaj Ji gave to questions regarding the true nature and purpose of charity. Opening with the dialogue described in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad between the creator of the universe, Brahma and his three classes of children – the celestial gods, human beings and the demons - establishes the book’s context. Shri Maharaj Ji referred to this story many times to highlight the importance of charity, and it is in fact the quintessence of the entire publication.
