Bhagavad Gita : अध्याय 17 का श्लोक 22


अदेशकाले यद्दानमपात्रेभ्यश्च दीयते।असत्कृतमवज्ञातं तत्तामसमुदाहृतम्‌॥

भावार्थ : जो दान बिना सत्कार के अथवा तिरस्कारपूर्वक अयोग्य देश-काल में और कुपात्र के प्रति दिया जाता है, वह दान तामस कहा गया है ॥22॥

And charity performed at an improper place and time and given to unworthy persons without respect and with contempt is charity in the mode of ignorance.


Contributions for indulgence in intoxication and gambling are not encouraged here. That sort of contribution is in the mode of ignorance. Such charity is not beneficial; rather, sinful persons are encouraged. Similarly, if a person gives charity to a suitable person without respect and without attention, that sort of charity is also said to be in the mode of darkness.
