The virtue of Daan (giving away or donating) in the Hindu Dharma is that you give without expectation of any return. The prescription of philanthropic ways like volunteering, donations and helping the less privileged is enshrined in the Hindu Dharma. The modern interpretation of Daan may mean donations to charitable organisations, schools and hospitals. The Hindu scriptures contain numerous examples of generous people who help the underprivileged through their Sewa (selfless service) activities.
We have similar aspirations at the CHN and would like you, our members to help. We volunteer on a regular basis with Sewa Day, a worldwide day of social action and provide both pro-bono support to Sewa Day and a number of other charities.
