The Joy of Giving!!

Experience the Joy of Giving!

“What I give to others I give not away, for in my larger reality it remains ever mine. I am happy in the happiness of all!” – Swamy Kriyananda

Paramhansa Yogananda used to say, ‘Whenever I see somebody who needs something of mine more than I do, I give it away.’

‘A few years ago,’ he told the monks, ‘I had a fine musical instrument, an esraj from India. I loved to play devotional music on it. But a visitor one day admired it. Unhesitatingly I gave it to him. Years later someone asked me, ‘Weren’t you just a little sorry to lose it?’ ‘Never for a moment!’ I replied. ‘Sharing one’s happiness with others only expands one’s own happiness.’
