“Why is it helpful to donate to charity?”

“Of the many charities to donate to, what are the best charities to donate to?”

“Is giving to charity part of leading a spiritual life?”

Among the many spiritual books available today, it is rare to find spiritual guidance related to the highest use of money – charity donations. This resource offering spiritual advice on how to make a donation, and why to make an anonymous donation, is sure to prove invaluable.



Manav Dharma (Gujarati Edition)

by Dada Bhagwan

Every human being is living a life but how much humanity does he have? Birth, education, job, marriage, kids, family and at the endâ?¦death! Is this the standard cycle of life to be followed? What is the ultimate goal of such a life? Why do we have to take birth? What do we want?

The human body that we have gotâ?¦should do the duty of being humane. There should be humanity in life. But what is humanity?

According to Param Pujya Dadashri, the Gnani Purush (the enlightened One). The definition of humanity is that when someone hurts you, troubles you, you don’t like it. Hence, you should also not hurt anyone. That, according to him, is the biggest humanity. Whoever understands this and applies it in life means he knows what is humanity.

Getting a human body means one is free to go to any is one of the four forms of life (gattis). One is human form, the other three being – animal form, devgatti (heaven/celestial being) and narak gatti (hell/beast form).

Whatever are the causes so are the effect. If we show humanity, we will get a human body in next birth. If we are inhumane, we will be re-born as in animal form. If we are extremely bad and inhumane then we are re-born in narak gatti. If we spend our life in doing good for others and help them without any expectations then we get a life in devgatti.

In the given book, Param Pujya Dadashri has discussed the concepts of humanity with the humble intention that if people learn humanity then human life will be fruitful.



Pratikraman (Abr.) (Gujarati Edition)

by Dada Bhagwan

Those seeking to lead a spiritual life inevitably face challenges in their sincere pursuit of spirituality and practice. As spiritual development progresses, facing the many unintentional mistakes made through mind, speech, and conduct become disconcerting.

Naturally one begins to wonder, “How to forgive and forget in unhealthy relationships?”, “How to forgive yourself – both for mistakes of the past and for ongoing mistakes in the present?”

One of the most powerful tools for spiritual healing of both past and present is repentance with sincere apology. Yet, it is rare to find a concise scripture on forgiveness.

In the book “Pratikraman: Freedom Through Apology & Repentance”, Gnani Purush Dada Bhagwan describes the spiritual power of forgiveness prayer, and offers a precise formula for asking for forgiveness. The book allows anyone seeking to practice spiritual forgiveness prayer to easily understand how to repent, how to forgive someone, and self.



A Slow Childhood: Notes on thoughtful parenting

by Helen Hayward

We are blessed to have Helen Hayward as our guide, confidante and explorer through the tumultuous, intensely familiar and yet entirely uncharted lands of children and parenting. Her achievement is to have written a book about the most ordinary things and to have located therein the most extraordinary insights and ideas.’ So writes Alain de Botton in his foreword to A Slow Childhood, a book he describes as “a triumph” having at its heart the greatest, founding philosophical question, a question parenting ineluctably demands that one address: what is a good life?

If you’ve ever struggled to balance a desire for personal fulfilment with a yearning to be the best parent you can be, Helen Hayward’s journey will resonate with you. Part-memoir, part-existential musings, part-guidebook, A Slow Childhood is based on the former academic and psychotherapist’s personal experience of transitioning from a life focused on career to a life focused on family.

Hayward’s discussion of how to make parenting work best for mothers, fathers and their children is thoughtful, honest, refreshing and challenging. It may be the book that changes your life, and the lives of your children, forever.

A Slow Childhood is a triumph. I was very moved, often to tears, by it. – Alain de Botton
