Annadhanam at Sai Datta Peetham

‘ Annadhanam Samam Danam Trilokeshu Na Vidhathe ’: These verses from the Vedas mean Annadhanam is supreme and incomparable to any charity.

Baba’s quotes: “Annadhanam - is the most pious and meritorious of all charity. Because, it is only by Annadhanam that one can be fully satisfied. It is only when one is given food, however much that person may take; there is a limit beyond which he just cannot take. The person says 'Thrupthosmi' (meaning ‘enough I am satisfied’). When food which is offered exceeds the limits, the person begs 'Please do not serve any more'. It is only when full satisfaction is expressed like this; the giver also reaps the full reward of charity”.
