The Vishnu-smriti says, “The goddess of fortune Lakshmi resides in those who are charitable”. 

Srila Prabhupada says, “I want that you shall distribute prasadam at least to hundreds of person daily, and advertise very widely all over Nadia Province for people to come there and take prasadam daily without charge.    … try to expand this program as much as possible at Mayapur and let me know.”      “Simply by liberal distribution of prasadam and sankirtana, the whole world can become peaceful and prosperous”.

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarswati Thakur: “Even earned wealth is obtained by the mercy of God. It is not the incorrect use of wealth if some portion of mercy is given to requesting poor people; it is its proper use! To distribute mercy (prasadam) is the compulsory duty of householder Vaisnavas. Even though their (poor people’s) miserableness has been obtained through the fault of their won karma, they are still God’s people. Therefore, to give them help is the compulsory duty of well-to-do-people.” (A Ray of Visnu).
