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.

The greatest inhibiting factor in practicing bhakti yoga is the doubting, cynical, intellectual mind. Doubt and skepticism harden the heart and narrow the mind.
