Radhanath Swami – Duties of a family person

The scriptures explain that one of the foremost duties of a family person is to give in charity. When we have something we should be willing to share it with those who are in need. And if we don’t share what we have, then we become hard hearted. The greatest charity you can give is by setting a very excellent example for others to follow.
