Sacrifice is the Goal of Sadhana

No boy can join college the moment he steps into school.  Several stages have to be reached and got over - the Primary, the Middle, the Secondary, the Higher Secondary, and the Intermediate.  So too, we have in the spiritual path, the stages of Work, Worship, Wisdom and finally, Sacrifice.  Sacrifice is when the ripe fruit falls from the tree, sacrificing its affection and attachment, weaning itself away from its support and sustenance.  Work is for the physical level; worship for the mental and wisdom for the spiritual.  You have to pass through the three stages, each one of you.  When I say 'you', there are three you's!   The one you think you are - namely, the body, the physical person; the one others think you are, the mental you, your passions, emotions, impulses, attitudes, beliefs, feelings; and the one you really are, namely, the Atma, the Spirit, the real Reality of your personality.

- Baba -


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
