Dana or charity is recommended as a highly effective remedy for a lot of troubles. Kanya dana, Vidya dana and Anna dana are regarded as the “Cure all” remedies.
Kanya dana (also called Kanya pooja): This is regarded as the best remedy. It is not limited to the Kanya dana performed in the marriage ceremony. Donate clothes, food and money, as per your capacity, to a girl below the age of puberty on either Thursday or Friday. Normally people take a vow to perform this for a certain specific number of times like 7 Fridays or 9 Fridays or 16 Fridays etc. This is done with a specific Sankalpa i.e., purpose – as a cure for something or to gain something.
Vidya dana: This is regarded as the next best dana. Traditionally it use to be giving free education to someone. In the present day setup, supporting someone financially for education is an equally good one.
Donating books, paying school or collage fee and scholarships etc. come under this.
Annadana: Donating food to the needy is called Anna dana.
