Puranic Concept of Dana

About the Book

The PURANIC CONCEPT of DANA provides an exhaustive expostion of the Hindu practice o gift-giving. Here in the author includes virtually every reference to Dana found in the Vadas, Smritis, Dharmasutras and Puranas. These texts reveal a broad spectrum of religiously sanctioned gifting. Specific guidelines exist governing simple hospitality as well as such grandiose offerings as a king's weight in gold or a mountain of jewels. These practices were widespread and important for the material support of Hindu society on every level. Consequently, elaborate directions and rituals developed to insure the propriety of gifts, givers and recipients. These teachings constitute the substance of Dr. Acharya's research, and through these passages the reader may glimpse the larger patterns of Hindu culture.

While the modern student may find the style of writing overly detailed and repetitive, one should remember their context and sense the 'Voice' of rishis.
