Charity – Why?
Charity given out of duty, without expectation of return, at the proper place and time and to a worthy person is considered to be in mode of goodness ~ Bhagavad Gita 7.20. Sins can be destroyed by charity. Lord Jesus says: “Charity covereth a multitude of sins.” Charity is a great purifier of heart.

Regularity is essential in our service to Lordships.
