O! Brahmin Priests rise: Part-2
You invite your friends and relatives only when you perform marriage function for giving food and clothes. Sacrifice is to be done based on the deservingness. The sacrifice to undeserving is a sin and so, the newly married couple consequently undergo sufferance. But, the same sacrifice done to deserving people reaps good fruits and so, the new couple enjoys the married life. Sage Vyasa says both sacrificing to undeserving and not sacrificing to deserving result in sin. But, you invite based on your blindness towards your friends and relatives.

So, most of the people are only undeserving and do not know even the minimum worldly justice. The newly married couple suffers because of the ill blessings of these undeserving people. So, you should not go in the line of Arjuna, who was blinded by the relations at the start of Gita, but invite the deserving with the discrimination and offer food and clothes to them. This makes the married life of the couple filled with happiness. If such deserving people are not found, you distribute the food to beggars. Atleast, they will not throw the food, which is the basic eligibility for the receiver of food as per the Veda (Annam Na Parichaksheeta …).

Lot of food is wasted in the present day marriage feasts. Marriage feast is going on at one place. Some people are enjoying the feast throwing lot of food in the plates on one side of wall. On the other side of the wall, some people are searching plate by plate and eating the leftover food. A devotee of Bhagavan Shri Satya Sai asked Him like this. ‘What is this paradox in the creation? On one side throwing the food and on the other side eating such thrown food!’ Shri Baba replied the devotee with all serenity. ‘Those, who are eating the food in the thrown away plates also thrown the food in their previous births. They are searching the same thrown food now in these plates’.

So, who ever throws the food, will get the birth of beggar in the births to come. Even the parent of bride, who arranged the feast and the parent of groom, who brought the undeserving, will also share the sin (kartaa karaaitaachaiva …) and also get the births of beggars proportionate to the number of plates in which food is thrown. The word ‘Pari’ in the Vedic verse ‘Parichaksheeta’ means that not even a morsel of food should be thrown. Similarly, money also should not be misutilized i.e., should not be spent in wrong channels. Otherwise, they will get the births filled with poverty. Right channels of spending money are giving to daughter or deserving people or donating to deserving beggars. Giving to undeserving people or spending unnecessarily beyond ones own capacity are wrong channels.
