The greatest blessing is the ability to give

My friend, while talking about giving, quoted her guru, "Jab Bhole Baba tumko kuch dena chahte hain tab woh tumhare mann me dene ki iccha paida karte hain! " ("When God wishes to give, he gives the 'wish to give' "). Imagine - God doesn't give wealth or food or health ... he gives the 'wish to give, to share, to sacrifice'. That is godhood.

Eashwaramma, Lakshmamma, Annasamy anna with their dharmam and their devudu and their punyam will simply nod with understanding. Eashwaramma told me that day on the way to the santa, "Whatever we do is because god put that thought in our mind."

I, one of the urban, over educated, godless unwise - distanced from dharmam and god and our own people and their religion and deep culture - need to be told all this again and again and again ...
