Donate to others at least to the extent of sesame seed size!


Telling what you had learnt
…in the presence of learned persons is good!

Reaching to be with superiors by knowledge

If you donate to others
…at least to the extent of sesame seed size,

without begging by self,
…it is too good by all means!
