During the last thursday

Annadan or food giving has been recommended as a means of charity
since ancient times. Baba also said , "Sitting in this
masjid (dwarkamayee) I shall never speak untruth. Take pity on me like
this: first give bread to the hungry and eat yourself. Note this well"
(Shri Sai Satcharita).
"By feeding the poor, taking them
to be forms of God, without caring for the fruits of your actions you can
gather the merit of feeding a thousand brahmins. Also, you can feed just
one saint. A saint is one with the whole world. Hence feeding a saint
means feeding the world." (talks of Shri Upasani Maharaj, the loftiest
creation of Shri Sainath). Once the saint has left his or her body one can
still feed the saint by feeding the assembled devotees at the saints'
ashram or temple.
Shri Sainath also further said, "Know for
certain that he who feeds the hungry, really serves Me with food. Regard
this as an axiom truth". (Shri Sai Satcharita). Keeping that tradition
alive, Saibaba.org will be performing annadanam service to the needy at
various venues during the month.
