Vedic Lifestyle


Today Gurudeva talks about the four sacrifices of Vedic life, to the Gods, to the ancestors, to the animals and to the community. He says many people are saying they want to "live the Vedic life," but how many are really willing to do it? Sacrifice means giving up, giving up in devotion to the Gods, honoring the ancestors, honoring the animals, not "eating every one of them," and be a producer and contributor to the community instead of a taker.

Purity, devotion, humility and charity are the four keys to good conduct. Of these, purity is the cardinal virtue. We cultivate purity by thinking, speaking and doing only that which is conceived in compassion for all.
