In our daily life we work, eat, drink, rest and sleep without fail.We need to be alive, and breathing inhaling and exhaling to achieve all these. That means inhaling and exhaling. It is just a process of letting out the breath and taking it back. Can we not understand that Life energy rests in taking and giving. When we inhale, there is no full retention but a part has to be released out and in turn becomes useful for other creatures. This implies the need for sharing a portion of whatever we have benefitted by way of charity.If one does not give up the air he has taken, he cannot breath.Charity is an act of giving to entitle ourselves to enjoy a commodity like Prana. In the same way, without charity man is not entitled to live. So charity is an essential part of life. Donating to the causes we care about, not only benefits the receiving person, but also deeply rewards us by giving a positive effect on our lives. Giving to charity makes us feel good. The knowledge that we are helping others is highly empowering and makes us feel happy as well as fulfilled.Researchers have identified a link between, making a donation to charity and increased activity in the area of the brain that registers pleasure. Blessed with the power to improve the lives of others is, to many people, an opportunity and one that comes with its own sense of obligation. Living with these powerful feelings of responsibility, is a great way to reinforce our personal values and feel in a way true to our own ethical beliefs. Sharing the experiences of charity with our children shows them, right from their young age that they can make positive changes in the world. So nurturing their innate generosity is likely to mean that they grow up with a greater appreciation of what they have and will carry on supporting the charity in the years to come. Giving charity encourages friends and family to emulate the same. Scriptures have presented the great personalities in front of us to inspire us in many ways.Our purpose of study is to have a look at them and practice such values to elevate ourselves with a bit of improving the society. Scriptures have defined various Charities and the need to do them and provided the proportion to be followed and its benefits. Probably we practice charity with the objective of gaining tax benefits we get from them. But studies of scriptures make us to look beyond all these and to achieve higher standards. They have instructed us to do charity not on occasional basis, but regularly.So re collecting the importance and the instances of charity, its need, the right perspectives of charity, and proportion of charity which one should do, is the central theme of our study.
