Man by nature is a rational being and the compatibility of his desire with the open endedness of the universe is a problematic phenomenon which considers at ones the community or social structure of man as a being borne into a community from which he derives, is personality, purpose, meaning, dignity and value. Thus peaceful coexistence and sustenance is man's direct responsibility. Within the confined of such aforementioned analysis, it is crystal clear that giving in all dimensions has deep psychological implications for determining man relations with others and his environment and to examine this unique disposition is the onus of this research. In this process a number of questions arise; What is the quality of our relation with our fellow men and the world around us and how conscious are we of this heavy responsibility? With the critical analysis method, the researcher examines giving and its psycho-social implication for peaceful human and environmental relation and concludes that being conscious of our actions to others and the environment is an imperative.
