Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda shared beautiful teachings on the subject of giving.

“Teach us to spend for others’ necessities as happily and freely as we spend for our own real needs. Teach us not to love Thy gifts and forget Thee, the Giver of all gifts.”

-Paramhansa Yogananda

“… without your assistance, the work cannot go on… All of you who wish to offer much-needed help, now or in the future, I bless.”

– Paramhansa Yogananda

“Making money honestly and industriously to serve God’s work is the next greatest art after the art of realizing God.”

– Paramhansa Yogananda

“Whatever money you receive, place it mentally (or literally) on an altar as an offering to God. Pray that it serve a good cause.”

-Swami Kriyananda


“Give to God, or to some good cause in His Name, a portion of whatever money you receive.”

-Swami Kriyananda
