Ten Commandments for Students from Taittiriya Upanishad – Part 11

Dear All,

 

Ninth of the Ten Commandments:

 9)   Shraddhaya deyam - (Give liberally gifts with faith and humility) 

 

 Do not stand on a high pedestal and take cents in your hands and say, “Here my poor man”, but be grateful that the poor man is there, so that by making a gift to him you are able to help yourself. It is not the receiver that is blessed, but it is the giver. Be thankful that you are allowed to exercise your power of benevolence and mercy in the world, and thus become pure and perfect’.

 

In other words, we should help monetary, physical or intellectual, or in any other form with a sense of respect. Shraddha means faith with respect.. If we do anything with shraddha, its fruits become manifold. Moreover the attitude of giving help removes our undue attachment to money, which is a great hindrance in developing a true personality.

 

Money can only be a means and never an end in itself. So when we gift money without a sense of pride and arrogance, such as giving makes pure, holy and compassionate. It makes us great. A lot of social or personal evils can be traced to people unwilling to help, which in turn leads to miserliness and cruelty. This unwillingness comes out of our attachment to money.

 

Now-a- days, thanks to the IT boom many young people suddenly become recipients of huge wealth, and then they do not know what to do with it. It often degrades them into subhuman levels of drinking, drug addictions, violence and so on. No wonder the instances of suicides and depressions are also increasing. If only people understand the meaning of learning to give. Learning to make judicious use of money, at right place and time and to right person is an essential part of the total educational vision of ancient rishis.
