BG Chapter 4 Transcendental Knowledge
Vs 31& 32 - 'without sacrifice one can never live happily on this planet, in this life, what then of the next life'. What sacrifice are we talking about? Are we talking about rituals?
But then in the next verse Krsna is talking about sacrifice of material possessions. Are we talking about austerity - giving up material comforts. Does an austere action have to hurt/be difficult to give up to count?
What wonderful answers, both Harika and David. Thank you so much.
