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 Saiva Siddhanta perspective is that Siva's wonderful universe of form is perfect at every point in time, complete and totally just, and every soul, in all stages of evolution, is an intrinsic part of it, even Siva himself.
