Effect of doing Charity(Dhana)

Effect of doing Charity(Dhana)
Srivathsa Somadeva Sharma
Translated by
All religions in the world believe that charity  would help  you  in doing God’s deed. Ofcourse charity should be given to the  proper person .Hinduism believes that Charity should be given to the Brahmin  who has  chosen to dedicate  all his  life to the study of religion and lead a life of penury. This list of  different charities  and  the gift that we are likely to get by doing them is given by a great Scholar  called  Srivathsa Somadeva Sarma.
