भवन्ति नरकाः पापात् पापं दारिद्र्यसंभवम् ।
दारिद्र्यमप्रदानेन तस्माद्दानपरो भवेत् ॥
When one commits sin, he goes to hell. Sin is committed by people usually to escape poverty. Poverty is the result of greed because of which people do not give money to others. Hence one must generously give money to the needy (to indirectly prevent going to hell).
