“The joy of giving is greater than the joy of receiving”
is the famous saying.
A True Satisfaction is in #DaanUtsav.
There are some special moments in everyone’s life where they experienced the feeling of happiness, satisfaction and peace just by giving someone. God loves those who find joy in giving and contribute for #DaanUtsav.
“Joy increases as you give it and diminishes as you try to keep it with you”. So the more happiness you give the more you get in return.
#DaanUtsav helps to forget problem & welcome happiness.
Studies show that most people when they are sad or depressed, but when they get involved in giving out something, it brightens up their mood and makes them happy. As in, a pregnant lady who suffers a lot of health issues, mood swings, etc during her pregnancy period finds joy, happiness when she experiences a new life stirring inside her, when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the first time, a playful kick in a tummy, etc and forgets all her problems, because it is her responsibility to take care of new life growing inside her. If a person thinks positive and keeps the intention of helping others, by hook or by crook he will surely find the correct path.
Most of us love to listen to stories, stories have power and they help us use more of our mind, imagination and creativity. One of the stories, I would like to share is, once there was a small boy, who was crossing through the forest carrying woods. On the way he saw an old man hungry, but had no food to give, he moved further and found a thirsty deer but had no water to give it to deer, he moved away and then he found a man who wanted to build a camp but had no woods, the boy saw this and offered woods to that man, in return the man gave him some food and water. Then he went back to the old man and gave him some food and gave some water to the deer. The old man and the deer were very happy, the boy himself was very happy since he helped someone who was in need.
Real Life Story of Unknown Heros
One more real-life story I’d like to share would be of the old man. There was a dim light near an ATM booth, which scared a hawaldar who was going on rounds, he saw small kids sitting in front of a giant man, having pen n pencil with books, he was shocked and couldn’t wait to reach the place. As soon as he reached closer, he found 20 students studying and a teacher teaching was ATM security guard. His eyes and heart melted like ice, he was overwhelmed by the gesture the security guard was doing by teaching the students, when out of curiosity he asked the security guard, about his profession, he named himself as Ex-army man Now retired, utilizing the dim light of ATM to teach the needy poor kids so that, the future of the nation can be saved. He said the only thing I have is knowledge and time which I can give to the kids this is a real example of #DaanUtsav.
Often with time, we feel like we cannot really give anything to anyone since we ourselves don’t have enough resources or time to give it to others. But this is not the reality, In the #DaanUtsav try to give to others, the more we give the more we get. There is a famous saying “Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting”. There are so many things we can offer to those around us either by money or free of cost. If u have materialistic things to give, to others, who have less than you, give it. If you don’t have material possession to offer, give them your time, your knowledge, your love, efforts and support and also many others things which cost you nothing but values the most to the needy.
My Little #DaanUstav Deed for HIV Positive Kids.
Every year my hubby and I decide to make someone happy on occasion which we can make our best. This year we celebrated my daughter’s birthday with HIV + kids in Navi Mumbai Social Desire society. This is an orphanage for HIV + kids only. The moment we entered the room the kids, wished us saying good morning to us. We were so happy at first instance looking at their smiles, then we served them food, and smiling faces made our stomach full. We played games, distributed gifts and toys to them. We also had chat with them. This whole incident made us realize that joy of giving cannot be replaced with anything else in the world. My kids too enjoyed so much that, now it has become a ritual in the family to celebrate a birthday in morning with them and then celebrate with others.
Different people from different communities, of a different religion, find or can say follow many different ways to serve the needy. There are also many different centres in different parts of the country like ashrams, orphanage, etc, which serve the people in need of #. Someone once said, “To help the poor is to help yourself”. Practically it means that helping those in need will later result in internal satisfaction and happiness.
At last, I would only say that the joy of giving cannot be put into words because the joy of giving has no end, it can only be felt. The joy of serving others can be felt on the face of the recipient. Basically, giving means ensuring that you are making someone happy by providing them what they need, the only thing is one should understand that,
”We make a living by what we get. WE make a life by what we give”.
