Those karmas that raise the vibrational level are known as virtues; those that lower it are vices. Charity is a human virtue that exists on the third-chakra level. It lifts the player above the problems of the third chakra and transports him to the fourth level of the game, the plane of balance.

As a virtue, charity is a manifestation of the Divinity, which is the essence of consciousness. When the player lands on this square, he identifies with the Divinity — present in all — and performs acts of charity without desiring any personal benefit from his karma.

A feeling of elation is experienced during the performance of the act of charity. This is the raising of energy from a lower level to a higher one. That is why all human religions have stressed the significance of charity and included charitable acts in their rituals. The reality of need and the desire to share are the two factors at work at the base of the game. Charity satisfies the developing ego and breaks the bondage of third chakra.

Charity is one of the most important pillars of the plane of karma. It is the motivating force behind man’s highest institutionalized activities — the mergence of compassion with the third-chakra penchant for organization.

The "Charity" (Daan) artwork poignantly captures the virtue of charity and its transformative effect on the third chakra. At the center of the piece is a figure depicted in the act of charity, symbolizing the elevation of energy from a lower to a higher level. This figure is enveloped by elements that represent the Divinity inherent in all, portraying the connection with the Divine during acts of charity. A radiant aura surrounds the figure, visually conveying the emotional upliftment experienced during charitable actions. The background is adorned with symbols of sharing and compassion, like hands offering and receiving, highlighting the fundamental principles of need and the desire to share. The overall atmosphere of the artwork exudes serenity and fulfillment, underscoring charity's role in satisfying the developing ego and breaking free from the bondage of the third chakra. It also emphasizes the importance of charity as a key pillar of the plane of karma, merging compassion with the organizational drive of the third chakra.

This variation of the "Charity" (Daan) artwork presents a more focused depiction of the act of charity. The central figure, embodying the giver, is portrayed with compassion and generosity, engaged in an act of charity. This figure is surrounded by a smaller number of recipients, both men and women, creating an intimate and impactful scene. Each recipient is depicted with dignity and gratitude, highlighting mutual respect and humanity in the act of giving and receiving. The radiant aura around the central figure remains, illustrating the emotional upliftment and spiritual elevation associated with acts of charity. The background is simpler yet still meaningful, featuring symbols that subtly represent sharing, compassion, and the divine connection inherent in acts of charity. The overall mood of the artwork is one of deep fulfillment and serenity, capturing the transformative essence of charity, which elevates both the giver and the receiver in the plane of karma.



A virtue's radiant light, on karma's plane it gleams,
Charity's gentle hand, a bridge to higher dreams.

Third chakra's hold surpassed, a burden lifted free,
The plane of balance beckons, serenity to see.

The need of one, the hand of one, a sacred, balanced way,
Charity breaks the chains, of ego's grasping (s)way.

Religions sing its praise, a universal plea,
To share with those in need, and set the spirit free.
