    Have you experienced the joy of giving?
    Just give to understand what I'm saying...
    Do not hoard for posterity
    Just give what you have in excess to the needy

    Giving increases your joys manifold
    Excessive things will only stress you more
    Free yourselves and home of all the clutter
    Whatever another says - dont dither

    Only a giving hand can receive
    And God's gifts you can perceive
    When you are lighter in head and hearth
    Ensuring greatness of your life and breath.

    Sathya Venkatesh

    Another nice poem Sathya
    I agree giving always have a different joy in us...........we can experience this only after when we give a share of us to someone needy............

    Dear Sathya

    Good one. Ihave expeienced the joys of giving. There was a time when i used to expect from others as we were not so well off. But now by God's grace He has given us everything. So I give whatever i can to the needy.
    Give to the world the best u have and the best will come back to u.

    Love

    Viji

    Yes Viji,
    I remember Swami Sivananda's words here where he says "give in charity one-tenth of your income or one anna per rupee".Lesser wants greater happiness, truly -love sathya
