Message for the Day… ” You are referring to the gift of food as Anna-dana. But no one has the authority to give in charity what has been given by God or be proud of it or even to feel that they have given something in charity.”

You are referring to the gift of food as Anna-dana. But no one has the authority to give in charity what has been given by God or be proud of it or even to feel that they have given something in charity. God gave rains, fostered the sapling and ripened the grain; what right have you to call it yours and give it in charity? It is not dana (charity) that you do; you are only offering gratitude to God! You are sanctifying the grain you have harvested by offering the food prepared out of it to Gods in human form (Narayanas)! So call it Narayana Seva! That will be more correct. Each one of you is a limb in the body called the Universe. Do your work without a murmur; work in full cooperation with all. The Universe will be healthy and happy only then. Love and love alone can bind you to others and to God, who is the very embodiment of love.
