EXPLANATION :

  • Karna was a great man in giving Dana to Anyone who asks for Dana from him.
  • Scriptures Support giving Dana only to whose who that Deserves it.
  • Sciptures Oppose giving Dana to whose who that does Not deserves it and giving to anyone is Punisable.
  • Karna would been full aware of this rules in scriptures but he gave to anyone that asks him.
  • Karna Didn't Refuse to give Dana even for one time.

    EXAMPLE :

  • Karna gave his Kavacha and Kundala to lord indra whose Intention was to kill karna.

QUESTION :

  • Why Karna didn't give Dana as said in scriptures to give only to whose who that deserves it ?

  • Did he Took a Vow to Give Dana to anyone as opposing scriptures ?

  • Will it cause Bad karma to Karna or Anyone if Dana is given to who that does not deserves it ?

  • how is indra unworthy of that dana? – Yogi Feb 25 '17 at 11:20
  • @Yogi indra got it only to make arjuna win and imagine a person getting a Dana from us to kill us – Sakthi Feb 25 '17 at 11:46
  • But Dharma shastras don't say that the person like Indra (vedic god) is not eligible for accepting dana. – Yogi Feb 25 '17 at 11:52
  • @Yogi friend i was not saying indra is not eligible to get dana but i am saying he got dana from karna only to kill karna – Sakthi Feb 25 '17 at 11:58
  • After you explanation "which says Karna was full aware of this rules..." "Karna didn't refuse to give dana for even one time". You've added Indra's example "Karna giving his kavacha and kundala..." which is obvious that your are pointing towards Indra's eligibility to take dana. You haven't mentioned that Indra's case is not about ineligibility but its about intentions of taking dana. – Yogi Feb 25 '17 at 12:04

Why Karna didn't give Dana as said in scriptures to give only to whose who that deserves it :

It's May be just because Indra deserves the Dana and it's was required to save his own son Arjun.

Did he Took a Vow to Give Dana to anyone as opposing scriptures ? Never read something like that anywhere.

Will it cause Bad karma to Karna or Anyone if Dana is given to who that does not deserves it ? Only If it was intentionally for someone's bad.
