सन्‍तकुमार उवाच

शस्तानि घोरदानानि महादानानि नित्यश:।

पात्रेभ्यस्तु प्रदेयानि आत्मानं तारयन्‍ति च॥१॥

Santakumāra uvāca

śastāni ghoradānāni mahādānāni nityaśaḥ |

pātrebhyastu pradeyāni ātmānam tārayanti ca॥१॥

Sanatkumara said, “All the big charities, which have been described as such,

should be daily offered to the able persons and only then they bestow welfare on the donates.

हिरण्यदानं गोदानं भूमिदानं द्विजोत्तम।

गृह्णन्‍तो वै पवित्राणि तारयन्‍ति स्वमेव तम्॥२॥

Hiraṇyadānam godānam bhūmidānam dvijottama |

gṛhṇanto vai pavitrāṇi tārayanti svameva tam॥२॥

 O Excellent Brahmana, the gift of gold, gift of cow, the gift of land,

when received by an auspicious person, result in the redemption of the donors.

 

सुवर्णदानं गोदानं पृथिवीदानमेव च।

एतानि श्रेष्ठदानानि कृत्वा पापै: प्रमुच्यते॥३॥

Suvarṇadānam godānam pṛthivīdānameva ca.

etāni śreṣṭhadānāni kṛtvā pāpaiḥ pramucyate॥३॥

With the giving away of gold and the cow, a person is relieved of all the sins.
