Famous Agasthya Nadi Jothidar Vaitheeswaran Koil
One day when Pandavas taking food a there came a poor man asking for any sort of alms saying that he is starving in poverty.
Yudhishtra immediately called that poor man to his side and donated him a silver bowl with his left hand because he was eating food with his right hand. The poor man received the silver bowl from Yudhishtra and went away thanking him.
As the poor man went away, Bheema asked Yudhishtra, “Dear Brother, is it not sinful to donate with left hand? Moreover you will not the benefit of charity when given with left hand?”
Yudhishtra while replying said, “My dear Bheema, I became compassionate when hearing that poor man’s pathetic life condition and immediately the idea of donating that silver bowl arose in my mind. But had I decided to donate him that silver bowl after I get my hands washed, perhaps my mind would have changed, I would even have decided to donate him something else instead of donating a silver bowl. So whenever we decide to do a good deed or charity, we should complete it at once else our wavering mind wouldn’t allow us to do it. We must always consider the benefit of the receiver of the donation rather than our own benefit out of the charity.
