Thyaga is a supreme virtue in man. One who has no spirit of sacrifice will be sick in body and mind. What does thyaga do to a man? It eradicates his selfishness. As long as self-interest is dominant, one cannot understand the Reality. A self-centred man cannot attain the Supreme. Hence, we must cultivate a broad mind and serve our fellow-beings. Even in the pursuit of multi (liberation), there is no place for concern with one's self. To be concerned with naa mukti (my salvation) will lead only na mukti (no salvation). Those who aspire for their individual liberation will never achieve it.
