Vedic science talks about Spiritual Economics. In Uni5 , we explain this using SAL Energy (http://www.uni5.co/index.php/en/sal-home-for-menu/self-awareness-life-energy-sal-2.html).

To fulfill a desire in life, Energy need to be spend. This Energy that we get from the Nature is traded with our http://www.uni5.co/index.php/en/universal-self-pattern. When we fall short of this inherent Energy, we experience suffering in life.

So Vedic science recommends to balance it out using a ritual called Thulabharam (Give something equal to). This is used for charity work without any vested interest but only public welfare.

It was a tradition of Vedic Kings to donate to temple when they gained anything materialistically.

Common things as individuals could do. Example one friend shared his experience.

Example 1
My father sold his own property in Erode. I requested him to spend some amount for the public welfare. He also accepted. Our family temple in Thudupathy village near Erode asked for an idol of Dhanvandri - Lord of medicine. My father gave money for that and said that in our family and town no one must suffer from severe sickness.

I came to know that his mother before 70 years offered a big brass lamp to Sri Kedara Gowri Amman after keeping few bronze vessels at adaku kadai.
She gave that lamp saying that she may die soon and she wants to do some thing for the village and she offered the lamp to Devi.

Please all of you try some thing like this with the property either to a temple, public work etc.
This is being insisted by great Rishi Sree Kabilacharya and Vanama Deva in Bahavatham.

Example two.
When I went to Singapore and came back I balanced that energy by offering a fees to a poor girl for college and an amount for daily rituals at Thiruvotriyoour Shankara Matam.

Example 3
When xxxxxx attained his 45th year, he offered Rs.5000 to a poor girls college fees and balanced the energy of life span.

Example 4
Mr.xxx in Switzerland always offer a good amount to an orphanage on his sons' birthday.

Please make your friends understand the spiritual economics to your friends and relatives.
Especially when you get rid of illness, purchase new property, celebrate any function, build house, out side of nation visit please do this energy balance.

What does that word "balance" refers gain or loss from the current level?

The word balance means to keep always a reserve SAL energy. So if we lose energy (in fulfilling material desires), then immediately do an action to replenish the lost energy in the reserve. This is what he meant as balance. Example, if we lose blood, then we are asked to eat well and balance the blood. This means to replenish the loss of blood.

If a person does good work, will he still lose SAL Energy?
If a charity work was done in the pretext of gaining personal money, fame, luxury (or any other personal gain), then the energy is lost. Otherwise if it is for benefit of others sacrificing one's time and energy it is Gain.

According to our Rishi's desires are not wrong only wrong desires is wrong :) , working towards the fame may be wrong but fame for a good work cannot be avoided in this situation energy is lost or gained ?

Excellent question. Results of actions (good or bad) cannot be avoided. If fame comes through good work, whether the doer did not intend for it, it is unavoidable as you say. It will go to the reserve of the person (gain) if the person realizes that I am a mere tool of the Cosmic play.

However when fame comes and if the person feels "I" am great, then it will manifest to boost his Ego-name, then the energy is spend (loss).

Ok, who / what is the identifier of an action whether it is a service or duty ?

The Self (one who does action) knows whether the mind set was a duty (folowing cosmic laws) or a service (unconditional Love).

Without understanding this concept, the story of Krishna, Rukmini, Satyabhama, Narada and Tulsi Tulasi in Thulabaaram has no deep meaning .

What does it mean about a humble offering to God is greater than any material wealth.

Does this mean that material wealth has no importance. No. It means that you cannot buy love through material wealth.

Very simple examples are
1. Not spending time (care/love) with your child, but buying expensive toys and gifts can equvate it.
2. You can cheat or win favors of family members, relatives, friends by buying them gifts. It is a negative (energy losing) karma to get such gifts and talk or do adharmic actions.
3. In modern politics, it is called lobying. Like families, workplace, community, society and country, trading material benefits to gain undeserved favor is destructive.

Finally, this does not mean you dont need to give charity of material wealth, but give a "lovely smile".

If that is true, would you accept God's return smiling face, when you pray for material wealth?. Then how would the reverse be True? Think......about the implied meaning. This story does not mean love over material wealth....but self-sacrifice over material wealth.

Tulsi represents symbolically Self-sacrifice.....It is the sacrifice or the act more important than the end result or phala out of it. If you read the story of Tulasi, it is about her self-sacrifice, that made her Vishnu's favorite.

This is what is implied in the story where Rukmini keeps a leaf that outweighs all riches of Satyabhama. Tulasi is purity without the Ego or "I" feeling.

When a help is provided to someone it should be out of love and not anything in return. This is why a tax exempt letter states "No return of goods or services was provided for the donation amount received".

If something is expected of donation, then it is business. it is different from charity (well in Kali yuga, business is sometimes done in the name of charity).

Satyabhama's charity act was to get something in return. It is not a dhaana (Donation), but an egoistic act of possessing Krishna. While Rukmini's act of keeping Tulasi leaf was not to win over Krishna, but only in tune with Krishna's thought of unconditional love (Bhakthi). This is the meaning of humbleness.

Doing act without the pride/ego or conditions is devotion
. In a material life, it is okay to do rituals to gain material luck/propserity....but it should be then weighed out with charity or donation, without any expectations in return.

This is also reflected in Mahabali's dhaana to Vamana, the reason why we celebrate Onam .
