What is the spiritual principle behind sacrifice?

One needs to give up the attachment to the body, mind and wealth in order to make spiritual progress. Of these, sacrifice of wealth is the easiest as it can be done physically. One can give away all one’s wealth. However, the body and the mind cannot be given away so easily. Yet one can sacrifice them before giving up wealth. This means initially one can perform service physically and chant The Lord’s Name mentally. Later, only when a seeker progresses upto a spiritual level of 70% can he sacrifice wealth as well. This is akin to the trapeze artist in a circus.

Similarly, so long as a seeker does not sacrifice everything, God does not take care of him. Click here to read more.
