Modern Day Remedial Measures
The karmic remedies I recommend here are based on the ‘spirit’ of the ancient texts: if it says to feed birds, I have someone donate to a bird sanctuary. To get an understanding of the intention of scripture, below is a verse from Praśna Mārga XXIII,
“Kings and rich people should establish free hospitals. Ordinary people should at least
give food and medicines to the sick. Then their sickness will disappear. 40.
“The ‘gift of health’ is the most important of all gifts. If anybody wants to be free from
disease and be healthy, they should help the sick with food and medicines. 41.
Suggestions for places to donate:
Actually or financially adopting a child, donations to teachers or spiritual organizations, donation to humanitarian work foundations
Donations to environmental protection or rehabilitation projects, donation to drug education and rehabilitation programs,
Do some background research on any organisation before you donate: it only works if the donation gets to the actual cause: Charity Navigator, Guidestar non-profit, Forbes 200 largest US charities
I rarely recommend Gemstones, but these are authentic providers to begin your search:
