About the Book

It is the mission of Paduka Darshan Sannyasa Peeth to bring alive the culture, customs and lifestyle as defined in the classical scriptures and traditions of India. Under the inspiration of Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati, the ancient tradition of daan is being revived through the activities of Sannyasa Peeth. .

Daan is the system and sadhana of giving, which is one of the foundations of human dharma. Daan: Path to Positivity and Purity presents this ancient tradition from the classical and scriptural understanding. The different facets, aspects and attributes of daan are explained giving both the traditional and the modern. perspectives and methods of implementation. .

The rishis, sages and saints of the past and the present have taught that the way to purify oneself is to give to others. Daan is unique in that it benefits not only the person who receives. The act of daan purifies the mind, sentiments, and emotions of the giver. The method, means and occasions to perform daan are explained so that all aspirants can practise according to their inclination and capacity.

About the Author

Swami Ratnashakti Saraswati has been a resident sannyasin of Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yogapeeth since 2002. She was initiated into Poorna Sannyasa in 2011 by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati. Based in Munger she continues to participate in yoga and sannyasa training.


Daan is one of the foundations of human dharma. Vedic thought states that three aspects constitute human dharma: sajna, propitiating life, earth, nature and divine; daan, the act of giving; and swadhyaya, self-observation, self-analysis and self-correction. Dharma expresses the righteous word, thought and deed. Daan is the first mandate given by the Divine to humankind.

Daan is not charity as many people believe it to be. Charity is giving with the idea and understanding that 'I am helping someone else', whereas the idea and understanding of daan. is that 'I am giving it for my betterment. Daan is an act of giving. The act of giving is to purify the mind, sentiments, emotions of the giver, it is for the betterment of the giver, for attaining and sustaining positivity and purity of the Self.

Daan ensures that at material level all have sufficient to live a happy and contented life; at emotional level it provides a connection with people based on empathy, understanding and reciprocity; at spiritual level it provides you with means to overcome the selfish and self-oriented ego and transcend it by expanding the awareness.

Our ancestors have used daan as a means to go further in the discovery of themselves and their connection with other beings around them. This presentation brings forth the clas- sical application of daan in a very scientific, systematic and practical manner for all to live the virtue of daan.
