Donation to deserving person brings good fruits & to undeserving brings bad results
Hindus are spending lot of money on ritualistic functions like marriage etc., in which the major item is serving expensive varieties of food. The receivers of this food are mainly relatives and friends invited based on your blind passion for relatives and your attitude of business to friends. The donation of food is ‘Annadaanam’ and for any donation the receiver must be an eligible person, selected not based on relationship or friendship. The eligibility is due to the spiritual knowledge and devotion of the person to God. Otherwise, you are giving food to un-deserving receivers, who may be your relatives and friends.
In Mahabharata, the sage Vyasya told that donation to deserving person brings good fruits (Punyam) and donation to undeserving person brings bad results (Papam). In a marriage function, the bride and bridegroom need the blessings of deserving persons, who should be donated with good food. But, today, most of the invited lot contains undeserving people only and therefore, this brings sinful bad fruits to the couple. This is the reason why the couple after marriage, now a days, is getting lot of problems in the married life.
