What is charity?Mar 15, 6:30pmStudent CentralIt is said that charity begins at home. But where does it go after that? Does it necessarily involve monetary exchange, and how can I possibly choose from amongst all the different parties who are rattling their tins on the high street every Saturday afternoon?
With all the incredible suffering that we know goes on in the world, perhaps we can be forgiven for shying away from even considering such matters. It may be too much to bear.
The concept of charity is discussed in the Bhagavad Gita, and this week we'll be assessing the following point:
BG 17.20 - "Charity given out of duty, without expectation of return, at the proper time and place, and to a worthy person is considered to be in the mode of goodness."
In one sentence, this really packs a punch, and no doubt will raise some emotive reactions. That's what Krishna West is all about...taking a source of knowledge that some will claim as authoritative...be it scriptural, scientific etc...then intelligently talking amongst one another in order to determine how to act in the world to bring about the most good...for oneself, and for others.
So...come along and join in this Thursday at Student Central, Bloomsbury Street. We usually have a small group of 5-7 turning up, so if you fancy coming for the first time, feel free. (Most of the people who come don't bite.)
Join us this month where we will be reflecting on the nature of *COMPASSION*. What does it mean to be compassionate? Is it an act that moves us towards the feeling of pleasure or takes us away from the feeling of guilt? Come along to join the discussion, all are welcome. Best wishes, Krishna West London. ...
