"On Giving in Charity"
by Hayagriva das
I appreciate all the points mentioned in Locananda Prabhu's article, but would like to remind everyone that due to the circumstances, there might have been a question of cancelling the Spanish Fork India festival altogether. Using the festival as a way of helping the families of the fireworkers who lost their lives during the rescue mission, may have enabled them to continue the festival as planned. At the same time, the festival helped distribute the Holy name of the Lord to the public.
In view of the extent of the damage, the amount donated was probably not helping a lot. But our gesture shows that we are able to act responsibly as good citizens, not only when it serves our own purpose. This was surely appreciated by society at large.
