ग्रासस्तदर्धमपि देयमथार्धमेव, तस्यापि सन्ततमणुव्रतिना यथद्र्धि:।
इच्छानुरूपमिह कस्य कदात्र लोके, द्रव्यं भविष्यति सदुत्तमदानहेतु:॥

Religion is more precious than wealth for a pilgrim; so spending his wealth for religion provides him ecstasy. A soul devoted to religion feels blissful, “Wow! I am blessed with an opportunity to serve my Dev-Guru-Dharm (Lord-Saint-Religion).

I am blessed… I am entrusted with the work of Dev-Dharm (Lord-Saint).”

According to scriptures we should donate as per our might. If you possess a rupee, donate a paisa; but do it compulsorily and practise to curb your greed.

It should not be a norm to donate only if you are a millionaire and avoid it if you are not rich enough. Actually donation is all about curbing your greed.
