V speaks on sacrifice in Himalayan Retreat:
what do you call sacrifice?
– living on an impermanent plane, gathering all impermanent objects, attaching oneself to impermanent beings; leaving anything temporary for the permanent self and calling it sacrifice. people call that as sacrifice or renounced which shall otherwise too be snatched at end of one birth time. think what is there to sacrifice or renounce in this temporary reality?
think, as you live your life on this planet, gathering all temporary objects and relationships, remaining busy all your life; there is something which is already sacrificed.
