Swamiji’s Bhiksha Guidelines :
Camp families can offer Bhiksha to Swamiji and other teachers during the course of the camp. Bhiksha simply means alms. Our Scriptures state that Brahmacharins and Sannyasins seek Bhiksha from Devotees and Householders. They do not cook for themselves. Thus it becomes our Dharma to provide Bhiksha. Merely the presence of Brahmacharins and Sannyasins sanctifies our very Being. The attitude with which we provide Bhiksha is of utmost importance. While we provide food to sustain the body of the Sannyasins, we ask for the Jnana Bhiksha (Alms of Spiritual Knowledge, Devotion, and Dispassion) from them.
