True Sacrifice, Part 1

Giving with thought of reward is not true giving. True giving is sacrifice, It depends upon how and why one gives. Gurudeva describes the difference, and he uses as an example 6 families in Malaysia and Singapore who sacrificed their young children to be trained at a special Ashram to be future swamis and priests for Iraivan temple.

In a relaxed state, happiness is found, and the qualities of the soul shine forth. Selfish, greedy people are tense, concerned, often inhibited. Tension breeds negative thinking.
