What we lose, we gain.

Sacrifice means to make holy.

We give up to become whole.

Desire, selfish taking, ignorance. All these things that keep us separate and pulled into our personal sense of self and stuck to the concepts of "me and mine."

We give them up. Or, rather, they dissolve through a consistent practice of yoga but, still, we have to want to give them up in the first place, otherwise it just doesn't happen.
