Sai himself explained the importance of Charity in the 14th chapter of Shri Sai Satcharitra. The meaning of explanation stated in the chapter is that, “Charity accepted by Shri Saibaba means devotees mind purity and ruin their sin ’’.
In the sentence in Vedas “Ydnen Danen Tapasa “ the significance of Charity based on religious efforts is explained to the curious Sadhak. Baba asked for Charity to relieve the common devotee from the pit of temptation and to safeguard the interest of him. Various donations are explained in the Upanishad. Baba told His devotees “What ever to be given should be given faithfully. Faithless donation is fruitless. Others would keep contact so far you have money. So save the money sufficient for wants, but don’t be tempted.” This preaching about common behavior is for the well being of Sai devotees. It is the advice that, “ Show the pity, Give the Charity, control yourself & you will be happy.” In this way Baba advised common people through Charity. It is explained in Saileela, that “Yadna ” is not possible without money. So the Donor gets major share in the religious fruit of “Yadna”.
