Give to the poor, the sick, the helpless and the forlorn. Give to the orphans, the decrepit, the blind and the helpless widows. Give to Sannyasins and to religious and social institutions.
Charity should be bestowed with humility and joy. You should feel that you are highly honored in getting an opportunity of being of service to another. You must feel that you are actually the receiver. Thank the man who gives you all opportunity of serving trim by doing charity. Give with the right mental attitude, with love and humility, and realize God through charitable acts.
