What is the Ideal form of Charity?

It should be spontaneous , unconditional and prompted from beyond the realm of the mind .It should be selfless .
If,after doing any charity , you continue to pride yourself over it or even think about it , you are really degrading yourself to that extent .If you continue to criticize the way in which the amount was utilized ,it means that you have not actually parted with the ownership of the money .
A conditional charity means that you have engaged the recipient as a servant , to do something for you in your absence according to your instructions , expressed or implied .
Therefore , the best way to do charity would be to do it and forget all about it immediately .
Sri Atmananada Krishna Menon
